Traditional, annual performance evaluations lose sight of driving performance into the present. Managers who effectively motivate performance year-round use ongoing performance conversations via one-on-one conversations.

Whether you're just getting started with one-on-one meetings or looking to refresh your employee one-on-one meeting template, our GOOD template can help!

The GOOD model focuses performance conversations on Goals, Obstacles, Opportunities, and Decisions. This method helps managers engage and motivate employees to take ownership of their goals, opportuntities and results.


What's in the 1-on-1 meeting template?

  • A GOOD agenda for your next one-on-one meeting
  • Smart questions to guide your conversation and dig in with employees
  • Quick tips on giving effective employee feedback
  • A downloadable PDF that you can print, email and/or modify
