Get closer to your team: Master your 1-on-1s


Officevibe is the simple platform that makes it easier to understand your team, master 1-on-1s, and grow as a Manager. In this article, we’ll walk you through how 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:

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


Team Goals

Every Team Member should be working towards the same outcome and know how their work contributes to the bigger picture. One of the drivers of employee engagement is a clear understanding of how you can impact your Team’s success.

Aligning your Team around clear, shared objectives will motivate your Team and give you the tools, as a Manager, to better guide 1-on-1 conversations.

Officevibe allows you to document Team Goals and review them whenever necessary for greater visibility and alignment. You’ll be prompted to identify why your Team is working towards a specific goal and the success measure you’ll use.

When the time comes for your Team Members to set Individual Goals, they’ll be able to link them to a Team Goal, ensuring alignment at every level.

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


Schedule and plan your 1-on-1s

One-on-one meetings are amongst the most important tools a Manager has and one of the best ways to ensure high individual and team performance. They help build trust, align Individual Goals with Team Goals, discuss mindsets, and maintain good communication with each team member based on transparency.

We’ve designed Officevibe to be your Team's home and make it easy for you to schedule, plan, and invite Team Members to recurring 1-on-1s. Make sure to use the Collaborative Agenda to create 1-on-1 agendas together with your Team Members, allowing you to make sure every meeting matters.

We know you’re busy, so reduce your prep time with our powerful Conversation Engine that gives you dozens of suggested talking points that 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.

Individual Goals and Action Items

As a Manager, you know that setting goals are key to driving employee engagement and performance. What may not be as clear, however, is how to establish these goals and monitor your Team Members’ progress during 1-on-1 conversations.

Officevibe empowers Team Members to set Individual Goals that align with Team Goals, and we give you the tools you need to establish and clarify expectations. Actively involving Team Members in the goal-setting process illustrates how they’ll contribute to team objectives, apply their strengths, and develop their skills.

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

Keep in mind that getting started on a specific goal can be quite 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.


Organizational Goals

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 own 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!
