So plan to join us quarterly to look back, and move forward with renewed energy!

To increase availability we now offer multiple sessions to accomodate your time zone.

Coming up next...

Focus on your strengths with Deborah Preuss:

Autumn Personal Retrospective

Have you been putting off your own personal retrospective? Let us bring it to you! Join a handful of peers for a friendly and relaxed facilitation, where each one looks back, privately, on the past period, in order to move forward with renewed vision and energy. Then, together, we'll discuss in a Lean Coffee format the topics that puzzle or inspire you.

Our next Retrospective series is coming up!
Two different times, to accommodate time zones on different continents:

Thurs, October 26 @ 16:00 UTC (see other time zones), or
Sat., October 28 @ 14:30 UTC
that's 10:30 New York - 16:30 Berlin - 20:00 Delhi  
(see other time zones /add to calender)

Duration: TWO hours.

About these retrospectives:

Retrospective Cocktails, facilitated by coaches Deborah Hartmann Preuss and Steve Holyer, are relaxed two-hour online meetups specifically structured to produce both reflection and actions. We started this to help you fit personal reflection into your schedule. Our meetups are typically small, rich, and really helpful. Last summer, one of our participants completed a book, as a result of setting goals in a retrospective!

We've noticed that coaches, leaders and change agents who don’t have easy access to a local community of practice especially enjoy doing this work together with us. But everyone involved in shifting work culture is welcome... whether software developer, product owner, manager, executive or consultant!

This is for you, if you want to:

  • turn your reflection into action,
  • set yourself up for more satisfying choices,
  • plan your next professional or personal step,
  • experiment with this new type of online personal retrospective, and
  • enjoy the energy of Coaching Cocktails.

Join us to look back for learning, with a relaxed group of colleagues. We'll guide you in a personal a reflection asking: "How would you like to adjust your choices, to be ever more joyful and effective in the months to come?"

What  data can you gather from the last month(s)?

So what  patterns, hypotheseses emerge as you review it?

Now what  actions do you want to test next?

We use Esther and Diana’s Agile Retrospectives framework to design a session that is engaging and interactive. You will do your own private reflection, and also engage and interact with the group in small breakouts and larger debriefs. Some of it may be private, and that's ok: what you share is up to you. Just know it will be fun and encouraging.

We'll close the session by looking at your own methods for doing personal retrospectives.

We look forward to helping you shine!

Your Cocktails hosts,
Steve and Deb
