Agenda Items for Coaching Events
Ambition's coaching events offer a variety of agenda items that can be used to facilitate your coaching conversation. Agenda items are used to build conversations in 1:1 or group check-ins, cadences, programs, action plans, and coaching templates.

2. Metric Snapshot
Available if the "Coaching: Metric Snapshot Item" feature has been enabled.
The metric snapshot agenda item will automatically calculate the metric total for the selected employee. The question for the employee to answer is built upon a preselected metric & time frame. When adding the metric snapshot to a coaching agenda, clicking the "Preview" button on the right will allow you to preview both how the question will appear on your rep's end.
Clicking the "Show Records" button reveals the corresponding records that contributed to the metric total.

The feedback agenda item can be used to provide a list of strengths, weakness, areas of improvement, or any other topic. The employee will be prompted to acknowledge the manager's feedback and can comment on the topic.
The feedback agenda item cannot be used in cadences. Feedback is also not available in programs, group check-ins, or either of their template types.
4. Content Block
The content block is a rich text editor that allows managers to provide additional information or context to their coaching agenda. It can be used to give more information about an action plan, the coaching program initiative, to provide company updates, or link 3rd party URLs.
The poll agenda item is a question that is answered by the employee on a 1-5 point scale.
Example: On a scale from 1-5 (1=low & 5= high) what's your level of confidence in your product knowledge?

The employee and manager will both be responsible for marking this agenda item as complete.
The external URL agenda item cannot be used in programs, group check-ins, or either of their template types.
7. Embed URL
The embed URL agenda item allows teams to iframe in a 3rd party website. This can be helpful when discussing reports that live outside of Ambition.
Note - Not all platforms allow 3rd party embedding. We currently have customers bringing in Microsoft PowerBI, Google Sheets, and Chorus.ai.
If you are embedding a Google Sheets URL, we recommend embedding a URL generated through the "Publish to web" share option rather than "Share with others". Learn more here.
