A Protocol for Clearing Questions and Handling Complaints

Surfacing and working through questions and complaints is key to growing and sustaining a great organization (or personal relationship). While clearing questions and dealing with complaints are two separate processes, this template covers both since often a discussion will surface each equally.

Any supervisor, manager, or leader that wants people at their best must cultivate a practice of allowing people to express anything and everything that might be of concern. Use of this protocol over time will help create a culture of openness and safety.

This template can be used to create a stand-alone meeting dedicated to clearing, or incorporated into longer all-hands meetings and leadership retreats.
