Coaching Visibility Preferences
Ambition offers two options for coaching visibility:
- Manager Level (default)
- Executive Level
Default setting. Only the Manager, the employee, and any added co-coach of a coaching event can view and update that event's contents, as well as admins or users assigned the Coaching: All Access permission.
Managers of managers within Ambition can view and update coaching events below them in the managerial hierarchical tree. Managers can engage with their direct report's coaching events and anyone who reports to their direct reports, cascading down the hierarchy. The Executive Level preference expands the default coaching event visibility.
To be considered a Manager of a Manager, one must be listed in the “Manager” field in a user's (with manager permissions) profile.
In the example below, Travis would be able to view coaching events for all of Amanda and Alex's subordinates since Travis is listed as their manager.
For subordinates, executives will be able to create:
- Action Plans
- Action Items
- Comments on Check-in and Action Plans
For subordinates, executives will be able to view:
- Public Notes and any Private Notes the executive created
- Action Items
- Action Plans (associated to a check-in or not)
- Comments on Check-ins and Action Plans
Executive Level Visibility Example
Betty (Amanda's manager) > Amanda (Erin's manager) > Erin (employee).
Amanda has a check-in with Erin.
How does Executive Level Visibility impact Betty’s experience with Coaching in Ambition?
Executive Level Visibility will:
- add the Check-in between Amanda and Erin to Betty's manage Check-ins table (Coaching > Manage > Check-ins) for Betty to view/filter across
- allow Betty to view Erin’s coaching dashboard timeline, including the Check-in between Amanda and Erin
- allow Betty to view public notes for Erin and any private notes Betty created, Erin's Action Items, Erin's Action Plans (associated to a Check-in or not), and any Comments on Check-ins and Action Plans
- allow Betty to create Notes, Action Items, Action Plans, and Comments in Check-ins and Action Plans for Erin
Executive Level Visibility will not:
- add coaching content to Betty’s Managerial coaching dashboard unless Betty created it (Note or Action Plan)
- update the Check-in card to display Betty as a participant in the Check-in
- update Betty's coaching badge count in the primary navigation or in the Check-in card view (Coaching > Check-ins)
- allow Betty to rate, approve, or excuse Erin's Check-in
