The Feedback Game – has anyone used it?


 I've just come across the Feedback Game. It's a card-sort activity developed in the Netherlands which is aimed at developing players' ability to give meaningful and constructive feedback. I'd be really interested in hearing from anyone who's used it, including your views on the appropriate level of experience of players, whether it translates well to a UK cultural context, etc. More info about it here -

  1. Excellent – With the right group

    Hello Mandy – Yes I have used this product and with the right group and situation it has been an excellent aid to what I was doing.

    Culturally it is seemless in a British context and wouldn’t have any concerns about using it when considering this issue. In terms of the groups I have used it with, they have been a maturer type of learner, not in terms of age but in terms of experience. Provided the target group can understand and recognise and then practise a certain degree of self regulation and control I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product. Go for it!

  2. Thanks Gary and another question!

    Gary, thanks – this is really useful. I’m interested in developing feedback not only in a line management context, but in all relationships – peer-to-peer, ‘upward’, etc. Do you think the game would work well for this or is it oriented towards line managers? 

  3. Where can i get the details?

    Sounds interesting.  Do you have any information or contact for info?


  4. More info

    Follow the link in the original question for more info, Jenny. You can also buy it from the Training Shop (google them).

  5. Versatile

    You could use it in all sorts of contexts and it would easily lend it’s self to the situation you outline. Whilst the short instruction manual (unless you buy the bigger version) may not have direct ideas for the situation you want I am absolutely certain that anybody with a modicum of common sense could easily develop something for this use.

  6. Feedback Game

    Hi Mandy, I’ve used the Feedback Game and made up some similar cards of my own for sessions exploring feedback skills within a UK small business environment, exploring issues around giving and receiving feedback and developing skills and confidence in doing so with peers, colleagues, upwards and with reports. This was with a very mixed groups in terms of experience, feedback skill, and age and it worked beautifully, enabling a very rich conversation about the processes of feedback and enabling people to practice doing it.  As Garry says I think the key is in designing a way to use them that is meaningul and then in some skilful facilitation.
