Every GreenShoot Labs team member has a 60 minute one-to-one with their line manager every month.
While we have a strong culture of direct and timely feedback, the monthly one-to-one meeting is an opportunity to take a step back from the day-to-day work and discuss what's on your mind.
One-to-ones deliberately have a structure which involves the team member doing most of the talking. Ideally, they will take place in person wherever possible.
The format was inspired by Buffer's work on one-to-ones described here.
Every one-to-one follows a standard agenda:
Ten minutes to share and celebrate your achievements (shared with the company on Slack if appropriate.
30 minutes to discuss your current top challenges, progress on any quarterly goal contributions or anything you’d like to add to the goal backlog for the next quarter.
Ten minutes for your line manager to share some feedback.
Ten minutes for you to give feedback to your line manager.
Line managers make brief notes of one-to-one meetings so that you can both refer to them.
