Use some of the most commonly used emojis to draw out insights as to how the team could improve.


- Heart Eyes- What did we love about how we worked in the last iteration?

What made us feel warm and fuzzy inside?


- Crying with laughter- What made work fun for us in the last iteration?

How could we continue that fun into the next iteration?


- Fire - Where were we on fire in the last iteration?

Where did we excel as a team?


- Suspicious Eyes - What do we need to keep our eyes on in the next iteration?

Where is there potential for drama? Or something we need to focus on?
