Follow-up with effective 1:1 conversations
By the end of each feedback event, it's important for employees to clarify the next steps in a 1:1 conversation with their manager. This conversation is important to make sure feedback is interpreted correctly and translated into a development plan and daily working routines.
Take the communication template from the download section, customize it to your needs and distribute it to all participants by the end of the event. The template informs people how to read, analyze and accept the feedback and prepare for their 1:1 conversation.
The 1:1 conversation helps employees to:
- Interpret the feedback correctly.
- Close the feedback loop and translate feedback into an effective strategy to develop personally and professionally.
- Embed feedback in the mindset and develop continuously.
- Stay aligned with the manager on priorities and goals.
