My manager utilized this tool for over a dozen of our 1x1's, each of which have led to juicy discussions with no time wasted. Our 30 min 1x1's have all been straight to the point to really get the core of where I'm at in my role. Answering LeadHonestly's questions has been a very effective method to vocalize my thoughts to my manager and as a result strengthened our relationship.
We've been using LeadHonestly for the better part of this year after moving from another service. We're a small tight-knit team of 10-ish people. That familiarity led to assumptions and the same two people getting together are going to quickly run out of new ideas of things to talk about.
LeadHonestly provides us the opportunity to explore those unspoken assumptions and makes for better relationships all around.
- I read obsessively about this subject. Having worked in both startups and bigger companies in the US and in Israel, I think Kim Scott has hit on exactly all the critical aspects of good leadership and does a great job of not only giving practical advice but spelling out the costs of not doing the work of becoming a good leader. Even with the right advice, it is not easy to become a great leader - if you can get yourself a good coach, do that as well.
