What is a 1:1?

1:1's is a tool that allows you, as a manager, to facilitate regular focus conversations with your direct reports over a shared agenda.

Why should you have one?

Setting regular 1:1 meetings with your people provides a mechanism to facilitate conversations around performance expectations, and provide support and coaching needed when it matters most on an ongoing basis.

Based on industry research, a regular commitment to meet with & support your people builds trust, improves engagement & ultimately lends to better outcomes in terms of productivity.

How Frankli helps you track 1:1s

  • A 1:1 schedule has a defined first date and time and then a frequency for recurring 1:1s that can be daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, annually or on an individual basis.

  • You can connect your Microsoft account and view availability directly via outlook calendar

  • You have the ability to host the meeting in person or via video using your favourite tools (MS Teams, Slack, Zoom)

  • An ability to select and set a list of recurring talking points or to choose from a list of predefined templates

  • Invites and reminders are sent via email and displayed in app for scheduled meetings

  • An ability to collaborate (both participants) on the talking points ahead of meeting

  • You will have access to a rich view of employee goal progress, ideas, praise and feedback are visible both before and during a meeting.

  • Participants can action items, create new action points, capture shared and private notes and add files to the 1:1 meeting.

  • Once marked as complete, the next meeting in the 1:1 schedule gets created.

  • From calendar view, you can easily look back at past 1:1 events to recap, access notes and use as a reference point for future conversations on performance.

Note: When you're creating a new 1:1 schedule and you're logged with your Microsoft Account - Frankli will connect to your Outlook calendar to get the latest information about your and the participants availability. This will make picking the best time for the meeting easier.

Note: You can only be involved in a single regular 1:1 (a recurring 1:1) with an individual. However, it is possible to create once-off 1:1s with as many people as you like, including those that you already have a regular 1:1 with.

The emphasis here is really on creating a collaborative rolling agenda for you and your direct reports.
