Setting and managing my priorities
The Priorities section makes 15Five an easy way to hold yourself accountable and feel progress on a regular basis. Priorities in 15Five are short-term goals/tasks that follow the cadence of your 15Five reporting.
- On your current report, you will see a question asking about your priorities for the coming reporting period. You will list your priorities for the next week (or relevant time period) and submit your report.
- During your next reporting period, you’ll see the previously added priorities listed at the top of your 15Five. You can reference this list through the course of the week to remind yourself of your priorities and keep you focused. Anytime you complete a task, check the circle to the left to mark it finished.
- If any of your priorities remain incomplete at the time of submission, you can mark them as such by leaving them in a grey state. You can also move unfinished priorities into next week’s report to give yourself more time. Just click the ‘cycle’ icon next to that item.
NOTE: If you do not mark a task as completed or cycle to next week, it will not roll over into next week automatically.
- There’s also space for additional accomplishments where you can list the things you’re proud of finishing (but hadn’t planned for). Simply click “Add more accomplishments completed from this past week”.
You can make comments, mark for follow-up, mention others and have conversations about your goals -- just the same as any other question in 15Five. You can even link priorities with Objectives in 15Five.
TIP: Remember that the application will automatically save any additions made to your 15Five, even if you don’t submit it right away. Visit it daily and keep things updated little-by-little.
