Seven years ago I shared the technique of conducting a “Vote One to Five” in situations where you’re short on time but need to check a team’s response to an idea, action item or new direction. You can read the specifics of the technique here: Leaders Use This Quick Buy-In Check For Teams
Not only does it hold up, I still use it regularly. I have nothing to withdraw or add, but two things to note:
1) This really works well, and I recommend you try it the next time you need a quick but nuanced pulse check.
2) If you get any “3” responses, make sure you’re clear on what each person’s 3 means.
It holds up, and I suspect it will forever.
Thanks for reading,
