1-on-1: Master your meetings and get closer to your team

In this article, we’ll walk you through how Workleap Officevibe now helps Managers and their Teams align goals and build stronger relationships.

With Officevibe’s 1-on-1 tool, you’ll be able to:

  • Align your Team around clear, shared goals.
  • Schedule, structure, and hold better 1-on-1 conversations.
  • Set clear expectations and turn goals into actions.


One of the drivers of employee engagement is a clear understanding of how their work contributes to the bigger picture. Aligning your Team around clear, shared objectives will motivate your Team and give you the tools to better guide 1-on-1 conversations.

The Goals feature in Officevibe enables you to do the following:

  • Create goals at the organization level (high-level), the team level, and the individual level (low-level)
  • Specify one or more measurable results for each goal
  • Link lower-level goals to higher-level goals
  • View the goals and their progress in an organized manner

Our simple goal-setting template walks Team Members through the straightforward steps of creating a SMART goal: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timebound.

Remember that getting started on a specific goal can be daunting, so we’ve included the ability for Team Members to break goals down into simple Action Items, making success achievable and easier for you to track in your recurring 1-on-1 meetings.

Check out our step-by-step guide on how to use Goals.

Schedule and plan your 1-on-1s

1-on-1 meetings are among the most important tools a Manager has. They help build trust, align Individual Goals with Team Goals, discuss mindsets, and maintain good communication with each team member.

Officevibe makes it easy for you to schedule, collaboratively plan, and invite Team Members to recurring 1-on-1s. Our powerful Conversation Engine gives you dozens of suggested talking points to help drive productive conversations. 

A Wrap-up function helps you never miss a beat with shared and private 1-on-1 recap notes and Automated Follow-ups to ensure key commitments stay top of mind for you and your team members.

How goals relate to each other

Executive Managers can create an organizational goal in the appropriate section. Once this is created, Team Managers get notified of the Executive Manager's new Organization's goal and can choose to create and/or link their Team(s) goals.

After the Team Manager has acknowledged and linked the goal, the Member(s) of the selected Team(s) are prompted to comment or link their individual goals and add talking points if applicable.

This 1-on-1 feature can help create common goals in your organization to ensure that teams align their goals and feel confident in making an impact at an organizational level. 

We have made it easy for you to create a vision for your organization!
