Pros and cons
This method focuses on the motivation and well-being of team members. It provides a starting point to assess and strengthen the health of the team by taking a few minutes to talk about how team members feel. However, this method is a subjective assessment and is based on trust within the team, provided the answers are honest and open. Of course, the calendar can be customised and used according to your needs. A big advantage of the team calendar is that you can see how the answers change after some time.
