Why a pulse check?
We've included this prompt because identifying feelings are helpful for managers and employees; first professionally, but also personally.
Research shows it's important to become aware when we're happy at work so we can clearly identify the type of work that makes us feel great, which is usually work that builds on strengths. This is why in 15Five we start with assessing how we feel and then drill down into wins. Conversely, its important to be aware of times employees are less happy, and identify the work and/or roadblocks employees are facing. This is why we start with assessing feelings and then drill down into challenges.
There's also really great research that shows how identifying emotions can decrease stress, so we can think more clearly and make it easier to find constructive solutions. Self-awareness and feeling awareness is also the first step in building Emotional Intelligence, a key leadership skill. Researcher Daniel Goleman shows that 2/3 of the effectiveness of business leaders comes from EI rather than IQ.
Feelings can reflect both professional and personal sentiments. This is in line with research from Culture Amp (an employee engagement platform) that shows the most engaged employees feel their manager cares about them both personally and professionally, so its important to cover both during 1:1's or when completing the 15Five.
