What is the 1:1 Manager Guide?

As a leader of a team, you are constantly interacting with unique personalities. You may regularly ask yourself questions such as 'how do I give them feedback?' or 'how do I collaborate better with them on projects'.

The 1:1 Manager Guide answers these questions for you. It uses your team members' Perspective profiles, compares them to yours, and helps you understand how to give better feedback and problem solve collaboratively.

The 1:1 Manager Guide is broken into four sections:

  1. How to give feedback: Learn how to give positive and constructive feedback to your team members. This can add lots of values to your 1:1s!

  2. Structuring Work: How to approach structuring a new project or assignment for your team member.

  3. Problem Solving: How to collaborate well together while having brainstorming or problem solving sessions.

  4. Final Tips: An overview of a few things to keep in mind while collaborating with your team member based on their individual work style preferences.
