People Leave Managers, Not Companies
Gallup studies show that only 1 in 3 employees are engaged. Even worse, over 50% of people have quit a job specifically to get away from their manager.
Is it any surprise that 69% of managers are afraid to talk to their teams?

Have Great 1 on 1s
Great 1 on 1s are your best tool to boost morale and get the most from your team, yet many waste them. Get beyond status updates, to awesome, motivating 1 on 1s in good times & bad:
  • Quick prep so you’re always prepared, and easily add things as you think of them in Slack, your email, or on the go with our mobile app.
  • Organize everything in 1 place for you, instead of across dozens of hard to quickly find docs and files.
  • Suggestions Questions to open up even the most introverted, solicit great ideas to improve your team or company, and build trust with everyone.
  • Easily set action items for next time so you keep all your promises, and ensure even your underperformers do theirs.
Goals

  • Lay out a plan together to show how they can grow in their existing role, or know they’re ready for promotion.
  • Align their work & motivations by making it a regular conversation, instead of forgotten outside review time.
  • Check in on progress in their 1 on 1s to provide valuable coaching & feedback and show you care about their development.
Rapport

  • Remember key names, birthdays, work anniversaries, and passions of your people to make you a more approachable, caring manager.
  • Strengthen your relationships by never forgetting the little details unique and important to each person on your team.
  • Suggested Questions help you break the ice with questions specific to building rapport and what to talk about with a new hire.
