This exercise is a brilliant way to align expectations, for instance, towards a new team member. I learned this exercise from an awesome Solution-Focused Coach Elvira Kalmár.

The exercise is quite simple, and a bit extreme to some: Sit in a circle, have the newcomer turn the back on the circle, and have the team to gossip in a positive and constructive manner.
When everybody have shared their “gossip” the newcomer returns to the circle and share his or hers reactions.
Comments, questions, ideas, and feedback is more than welcome!
