15Five’s 1-on-1 meeting agenda allows you to enhance and streamline your one on one meetings while recording the most important learnings all in one place. If your company settings allow, you can have a 1-on-1 with anyone in your company. This vital element of a workweek helps you build relationships and re-align team + individual goals. 1-on-1 agendas are not updated in real-time for both participants but are updated and changes become visible on an hourly basis.
1-on-1 content is only viewable by the two participating people, regardless of hierarchy, Group Permission settings, or Following permissions.
You can add your team's 15Five answers to a 1-on-1 agenda. To get the most out of the 1-on-1 feature we recommend you ask a company-wide question "What do you want to discuss in our next 1:1? Nothing's too big or small.
Create a 1-on-1 agenda
1. Click on 'Features' from your left navigation.
2. Click '1-on-1s'.
3. You will automatically see a list of all people that report to you (if applicable) and a list of all people that you have held a 1-on-1 with previously.
15Five auto creates new 1-on-1s between you and your manager or you and your direct reports when the previous 1-on-1 is ended. In other words, for the reviewer/reporter 1-on-1s, you do not need to create a new 1-on-1 each time. Simply go to your 'My 1-on-1s' page and find the name of the person whose agenda you would like to view.
3. Click the orange 'Create a new 1-on-1' button.
4. A 'Create a new 1-on-1 agenda' pop-up window will appear. The window will include a drop-down menu. Use the dropdown menu to find the teammate or direct report that you want to create a new 1-on-1 with, and click on their name.
If you do not see this dropdown and the option to hold a 1-on-1 with anyone, contact your company admin.
5. Then click 'Create a new 1-on-1'.
6. You will be automatically redirected to the new 1-on-1 agenda with the person you selected.
7. Next steps: Fill out the agenda with talking points and action items and add in a date for the 1-on-1 by clicking the orange 'Schedule 1-on-1' button.
8. Choose a date and (optional) time for the 1-on-1 meeting to occur.
If you choose a date only, we recommend that you also send a calendar invite to the other person, holding the spot on their calendar. If you choose a date + time AND have the Google Calendar integration live for your company, we will put a meeting on the other person's calendar for that date and time. Again, the time fields are optional, even if you have an active Google Calendar integration.
Manage your 1-on-1 agenda
Add answers from a 15Five to your 1-on-1 agenda
Go to your 'Team 15Fives' tab. You will see a list of team members you review, and can go through their reports. While you review 15Fives, you can add answers to the team member's 1-on-1 agenda. Rename the answer with a short title that will appear on the 1-on-1 agenda itself. These added answers will appear as talking points on the current 1-on-1 agenda.
For a walkthrough on how to add answers to the 1-on-1 agenda, see this article.
Add talking points, action items, & notesTalking points, action items, and notes can be added directly to the 1-on-1 agenda at any time before the 1-on-1 has been ended.
Unchecked talking points will carry over to your next 1-on-1 agenda without any intervention! These unchecked items will appear in the 'Talking points' section again.
Checked off/discussed talking points will still disappear from the following 1-on-1 agenda, as they have been talked about and checked off the list.
Action items that are left unchecked, will appear on the next 1-on-1 under the 'Previous action items' section. Action items (previous and current) that are checked off will not appear on the next 1-on-1.
Action items can now be assigned to either person in the meeting. Click the avatar next to the action item you want to assign, and select the owner. These action items will appear in the summary email as being assigned to a specific person.
Private items will only be visible to you.
End MeetingClick 'End 1-on-1' for a new agenda to show for a team member. After your 1-on-1 meeting is complete, a summary email is sent to your team member with any shared notes and action items. The 1-on-1 summary email will be sent 1 hour after the meeting is ended.
