My goal is creating an excellent audience experience this time and a better one next time. To improve I want to know how well I performed and what I could do better. I ask my audiences for three reactions:
• What did you like best?
• What do you want me to expand?
• What do you want me to add?
After workshops I ask participants to complete a quarter sheet form with three sentence stems seeking feedback on the above. While this is seldom convenient after a speech, I can glean these points from those who want to chat after. (The dashed arrows in the 4-DEEP figure are a reminder that Debriefing is seldom done.)
Important Note: I do not seek negative comments (but they will come). By focusing on the positives — what they liked, what they want more of, what they want added — the negatives will disappear. It works for me.
