At this moment where remote work is strongly present, it is important to work on relationships between team members. For that this tool will help in a very easy way!
How does Personal Mapping work?
The idea is to build a mental map with the personal information of each member, such as family, education, work, hobbies, values, friends, goals, among others.
In the image below you can see an example of the practice inside beefor :
This information will be available to everyone on the team and can serve as common topics (hence the icebreaker).
This dynamic also enables communication and proximity between people. Well, it inserts trivial matters that could be brought up in a moment of coffee break in the company. But without the need to be present in the same physical space.
How to associate with 1:1 Feedback (one-on-one)
The Personal Map technique can combine with the practice of 1:1 Feedback . Similarly, it contributes to the clarity of the person’s personal and professional goals. So that at each meeting you can follow the progress of each step taken towards what you want to accomplish.
In addition to asking questions about how your family is doing, the progress of college or a certification that the professional aims to achieve, among other issues that help the manager to get closer and closer to the team member.
