Cupid, the god of love in Roman mythology, arrives in Neatro! His mission is simple: he wants to spread the love at your next retrospective. 💖

The time when we used to coldly examine what went well, what didn't go well, and what could be improved is over! Cupidon is there to strengthen the bonds between team members and accentuate recognition within the team.

The Neatro team has imagined this original retrospective to help your team members gain self-confidence, express their emotions and share their feelings towards their teammates.

Of course, you can use this activity around Valentine's Day. But let's be honest... the world needs love 365 days a year, doesn't it?

Why & when should you use Cupid's retrospective?

This activity was conceived to generate positive discussions... and warm the heart of your team members. Cupid retrospective helps you reflect on your last work cycle by emphasizing the positive elements first. Then, this activity leaves room for team members' wishes, which will undoubtedly make improvement ideas emerge.

You can use this template to vary the nature of your recurring retrospectives (e.g., Sprint retrospective). Also, this retrospective idea works very well with a broader audience. Consequently, you could use Cupid as a company retrospective to take stock of the last quarter.

In terms of emotions, Cupid was designed to provide a pleasant, soothing and comforting retrospective experience. Having a good time does not exclude building an action plan to help the team improve, though ;)
