Here’s a (very) short guide on how Stretch works. It’s ridiculously simple to use, so no need to waste too much time here.
Invite Stretch to your smaller, team-focused Slack channels - typically between 5 and 25 people. Channels where people collaborate on specific projects are ideal, so avoid adding Stretch to #general or #random. Once Stretch is in your channel, it will introduce itself to the team and let everyone know how it will help manage and improve performance.
Because it’s built into Slack, Stretch pays attention to who is working together and asks those people to give each other feedback. Stretch asks each person one simple question each day, and collects and compiles these valuable team insights to create a holistic, intelligent measure of your and your teams’ performance.
Once Stretch collects enough feedback, you will be able to see a score for yourself and your teams. Everyone is always contributing feedback, so your score will be constantly changing to reflect your team’s performance in real-time. Fluctuations are normal and an impetus for conversation and self-reflection, not a means to punish or promote.
