In-person conversations between people managers and their direct reports are invaluable arenas for sharing feedback, discussing career development, and promoting alignment. Managers are likely interested in providing their direct reports with feedback about their performance or offering career guidance, but oftentimes, these conversations are plagued with inconsistency, lack of preparation, and a lack of ownership. By leveraging our 1:1s tool, both employees and their managers can now have better conversations with the use of structured discussion topics that are built right into the solution.
Our 1:1s tool facilitates impactful, productive conversations by:
- increasing visibility into the topics that are top of mind for both parties
- providing structure to recurring conversations
- allowing employees and managers to prepare ahead of schedule
Additionally, our 1:1 solution integrates with tools that your employees are already using, allowing them to add discussion topics from their inboxes, Slack, Microsoft Teams, or their mobile devices.
When you first log into Reflektive, you should be directed to your homepage (denoted by the Home tab on the top bar.)
On the right-hand rail, you'll see the 1:1 Conversations section. Currently, your manager and direct reports will populate this section.
When you click into any of these individuals, it will take you to an individual 1:1 conversation page with that person.
Creating a Meeting
When you are on a 1:1 conversation page with an individual and haven't had any meetings with them, you'll see this screen. Click on Create Meeting to get stared.
A modal window pops up asking you to define the parameters around the 1:1. You can pick the date and cadence.
After you select the date and cadence, you'll see a date appear along with Add a topic and Conversation Starters.
Clicking on Add a topic pops open a window that lets you set the topic title along with whatever context you'd like. You can also change privacy settings (shared or private)
While you can set any topic, it's highly encouraged that you begin with Conversation Starters.
Employees and managers are both able to leverage a series of pre-populated templates, or create their own topics to guide upcoming conversations. Since all of this is housed in the Reflektive platform, users receive suggestions based on performance activity that can be quickly added as discussion topics.
After you select your template, go through and pick the question(s) that you discuss. That's it! Email notification reminders will be sent out by the system a day prior to the 1:1, as well as the day of. You are able to opt out of these communications within your personal email communication preferences.
