Here's how it works

I've been using KYT's One-on-One tool with my team for a few months now, and the level of engagement with my employees has increased substantially.

Build trust to help your team work well together...


Break the ice in your team by asking non-cheesy get-to-know-you questions and learning each other's work preferences. It's a great way to build trust, introduce new team members, and help everyone acclimate to each others' working styles.

Knowledge Center

Educational Guides

Management books don't cut it. Their fluffy generalities and lack of examples don't help you learn. Management trainings don't fit the bill, either. They are time-consuming, expensive, and a one-time thing.

Our written guides are different. You're short on time, as a manager – so we wrote our guides to be breezy, practical, and no-nonsense. Based on data from 15,000+ people, we give you specific techniques you can put into practice immediately the next day.

All your team members also get an "Employee Version" of each guide, specifically written for individual contributors.

With KYT, I'm able to thoughtfully plan my 1:1s instead of totally winging them. Plus, I have the ability to review past conversation notes and really feel like I'm being a valuable manager.

As a remote team working asynchronously across six countries, we found it hard get to know each others personalities. Know Your Team has filled in lots of blanks.
