We go low. Not because it's summer outside or because some of you are on holiday. We slow down and test this (s)low-tech version of Don't Panic. Content curation stays the same but we proposer to you this text-only version. We care about our impact and wanted to do something about it. We care about page size, information overload, the signal vs noise ratio, etc. We want to know if you care as well.

Wether we're worried about the reaction of the other or preoccupied about the legitimacy of the feedback, we are sometimes prone to keep our feelings to ourselves. At Antistatique, we started to use the framework called "I like, I wish, I wonder". Since we value the feedback of everyone involved in a project, we wanted to create a safe space for them to express their ideas. By bringing everybody in the same room and asking them to respect a few rules, here's how you can make the process of giving feedback less painful and more constructive : 1.Make 3 columns on a board. One called "I like", the 2nd "I wish", the 3rd "I wonder" 2.Allow everyone to write a card for each column regarding a topic that you've specified together. 3.Each of the participants will then give their feedback, following the order mentioned on point 1. Sidenote : it is crucial that the one who receives the feedback doesn't interrupt the one who talks. Let's say we're talking about our design process. That would give something like "I like the way you're handling our design process on Figma, but I wish I would also participate in it. So I wonder if you could onboard me on your process ?" It does not only gives feedback to the recipient, but also expresses gratefulness, shares the feeling of the feedback giver and invites for action. We should all benefit from the feedback of our colleagues and allow ourselves to say what's on our mind.
