Could You Give Creative Feedback?
Giving feedback is not that easy. Many are covered as a precaution. Others cultivate skillful tearing. Simply asking someone for his opinion does not necessarily lead to the best results. So how do you get feedback for your ideas, meetings or concepts? I have some creative suggestions here. What is such a creative workshop should actually have creative feedback opportunities? Anyway, the opinion was the moderator of such a writing services like
1. The point query
Let's start with a classic: regardless of whether you rate ideas or want to sweat the leader of a workshop in the assessment — with points it is easier and more fun. You can specify certain criteria or have the participants name them. Everyone gets the same amount of points. Then all of their points are allowed to happily stick to where they find their opinion. Multiple answers are possible.
2. The coordinate system
This is something for the math fans below you: make the rating visible through a coordinate system. Instead of wild heaps of points that you have to count out laboriously, you get such a visible development. To do this, enter in your coordinate system on the x-axis, how useful, for example, an idea is, and on the y-axis, how effective you or your participants are. For each idea, place a glue dot on the interface between the two values. In the closer planning then come all the ideas that are as useful and feasible.
3. Select pictures
Say it with flowers — no, wait, with pictures. Instead of laboriously searching for the right words, your participants can also express their feedback through pictures. Use maps, photos, small gimmicks — whatever you have there. Either give each image a specific meaning or let the participants intuitively choose an image. In the analysis, you may then proceed as intuitively and try to interpret mood or opinion. Attention: Make these and other methods secret, depending on the nature of the feedback. Not everyone dares to speak openly. And not everyone can handle getting that opinion. That just unnecessarily cramps the atmosphere.
4. Write article
This method is something for all writing fans. Distribute pen and paper and have your participants write their feedback. That could be a small article, a press release, a gloss, whatever. The writing helps to clarify his thoughts, to clarify the reasons for something or to find illustrative examples. Depending on the textual form, it is also a good way to change perspective (and write from a customer's point of view), to seek neutrality (as a scientific report), to try it with humor (the gloss), and more.
5. To move
Bring movement into play. For example, use a technique from the system setup and assign certain assessment options to certain corners of the room. Depending on your opinion, your participants will then gather in one corner or the other. You can do something like that in between to make everyone wakes up and wake up.
6. Take different perspectives
I just mentioned that you could switch perspectives on a fictitious article. This is also possible with creative techniques. A well-known method for this is the 6-hat method of Edward de Bono. Have your participants wear different hats of thought and give appropriate feedback. For example, try again for objectivity and pure facts. Then listen to your stomach. Look for positive, negative, etc.
