Meaningful Touchpoint Guides

No matter where you are in a Team Member’s journey, having meaningful development conversations is part of that experience.  Coming to these different touchpoints prepared and with an intention set for what you want to cover with your Team Member can lead to a more productive and meaningful experience for everyone involved. Don’t forget that our goal is to meet with each of our direct reports within 30 days after completing a review. The Evaluation is meant to open the conversation, not serve as the singular development update.

Reflect, Ready, Review

Try approaching the conversation with RRR: Reflect on what you know about this Team Member, Ready the Team Member with a collaborative plan forward, and continue to Review and revise goals and behaviors to ensure efficient and meaningful development.  Use the RRR Guide to get started. Once you’ve had the conversation, Spark to document the 1:1 Meeting and keep track of goals by using the Goal(s) classification.
