How do I use the Performance Conversation agenda as a manager?

As a manager, using Performance Conversation agendas allows you to have career and growth discussions with your employees to ensure their career paths stay a priority.

Notes:

  • An employee cannot see what a manager writes in their half of the agenda until the manager starts the Performance Conversation.
  • A manager can preview their employee's half of the agenda before the Performance Conversation starts but only after completing their own half of the agenda.
  • Only a manager can start or complete a Performance Conversation.
  • A manager can start a Performance Conversation even if the employee has not filled out their half of the Performance Conversation agenda.
