Lighthouse's goal is to make everyone have a great manager. Key to that is how you communicate, develop, and build trust with your team.
With Lighthouse Team Member accounts, your team can be a part of your use of Lighthouse in 3 key areas:
1 on 1 Prep: Get your team ready for their 1 on 1 with you, contributing to the agenda and seeing what you want to discuss.
1 on 1 Follow Through: Ensure your team is accountable and completes their action items.
Growth & Goals: Collaborate on their growth and goals in Lighthouse fully by creating, editing, updating, and completing goals.
Note: These accounts are free with your paid Lighthouse Manager account (more on billing here).
Here's what Team Member accounts look like:
1) The 1 on 1 for Team Members
The 1 on 1 tab for Team Members is much like a manager's. They see:
Current and upcoming 1 on 1s
Action items from last 1 on 1
Agenda items entered by your manager for this 1 on 1
An area for a Shared Agenda of things you want your manager to see
Private notes for anything you want only for yourself to see
They also get the same timeline of Past 1 on 1s:
The key differences for team members then are:
Read & Complete Action Items: Team members cannot create nor edit them. It's the manager's responsibility to clearly set expectations.
Goal steps due soon: Most Goals are driven by team member effort, so we remind them of an Goal steps due soon to remind them.
Prep Timing: Managers get a prep email the morning of or the night before the 1 on 1. Team members get a reminder 3 days and 1 day before the 1 on 1.
2) Goals for Team Members
A huge part of long term happiness for great employees is a desire to grow. Whether that's a promotion, or deeper/broader skills in their existing role, most employees want some form of growth.
With Lighthouse, when team members have accounts, they can collaborate 100% equally with their managers:
Create new Goals
Add steps to Goals
Complete, edit, and delete Goal steps
Archive, Delete, and Complete Goals
Email the Goal to let the other person know you've updated it
3) Complete your Reviews in Lighthouse
This is a premium feature in Lighthouse available on the Growing Organization tier. Team Members can complete their reviews in the same place they have their 1 on 1s and goals.
