New Coaching Sessions (and subsequently, each employee's Check-In) will be generated based on a Program's cadence.
The Manager, Contributor, and Ambition Admin can see the shared Coaching Sessions. While Admin will not directly interact, they can access the Coaching Check-ins as an "Observer" if they desire.
How does an Employee Interact with Coaching?
Employees will be notified both in-product and via email when a new Check-In is available to be completed.
They will then navigate to the Check-In within Ambition where they will:
- Answer the Program's questions
- Optionally leave comments for additional context or questions
- Click the green Check Mark to complete
After the Employee has marked the Program as complete, the Program's Owner will be notified both in-product and via email that the Check-In is ready for review and approval.
How do Managers Interact with Coaching?
Managers will be notified both in-product and via email when an employee's Check-In is ready for review and approval.
They will then navigate to the Check-In where they will have the options to:
- review the answers
- provide a rating that is visible to both employee and manager
- excuse the check in if necessary
- optionally leave comments (No notification is sent upon leaving comment)
- either click the Conversation Bubble to Request Feedback or the green Check Mark to complete
Requesting feedback typically corresponds with leaving comments where a manager will ask for additional clarification or details. The employee will be notified that the Check-In has been reviewed but has not been approved.
Upon clicking Complete the employee will be notified that the Check-In has been reviewed and has been approved.
Check in Rating
Clicking the blue Star button will allow a Manager to Rate or Excuse a respective Check-in.
There are four different ratings that can be assigned to a Check In:
- Exceeded Expectation (Score of 3)
- Met Expectation (Score of 2)
- Below Expectation (Score of 1)
- Did Not Complete (Score of 0)
A Check In can be marked Excused as necessary; for example, when an employee is on vacation.
Search for Coaching Check Ins
Click on the Check Ins button found under the Coaching tab in the left-hand navigation. There, managers and employees will see all coaching sessions that are applicable to their user account.
- Managers will see all check ins that they host and, if applicable, any check ins that they are personally required to do with their corresponding supervisor.
