Agile Resolutions for 2021

It’s that time when everyone is thinking about starting fresh. Last month, we talked in detail about personal and professional retrospectives. Now that the calendar has flipped to the new year, it’s time to take those retros and turn them into resolutions!

Here are some of Braintrust’s resolutions going into 2021. 

Express praise and gratitude to our team for their accomplishments in 2020. It was an incredibly tough year, and everyone did their best. 

Ask the team what the three biggest lessons they learned in 2020 were, and how they plan to apply those lessons in 2021.

Closely inspect our organization’s mission and core values, then adapt as necessary.

Find out if toxic emotions got in the way of team productivity.

Continue to inspect and adapt with whatever this year brings us. 

Sit down once a month to conduct retrospectives, then apply what we’ve learned to the coming month.

Celebrate every win.

You can share these resolutions with your team members and reinforce your dedication and willingness to listen to them.  It will also reignite the “human nature” side of you and your team.
