Geoff Crain and Aman King

Build empathy through peer feedback

Geoff Crain and Aman King Team Lead, Development Manager Atlassian

In this talk Geoff Crain and Aman King will show you what value peer feedback has brought to Atlassian teams, and how to introduce and nurture it within your team.

Devs talk to each other through pull requests and building technical solutions. They have 1-1s with their managers about personal growth. It can be way better than this: enable and encourage your devs to ask for, and structure actionable feedback to each other to foster individual growth, and build empathy and team work.
