If you're a first-time manager, recently promoted as a manager, or feel like you have no idea what you're doing as a manager, Know Your Team is for you. Use Know Your Team to hold more effective one-on-one meetings, get honest feedback, and build team rapport – all in one place.
We give you Tools, a Knowledge Center and a Community to develop the 3 skills the best managers have: Trust, Honesty, and Context.
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.
Give positive recognition to your team members in a meaningful way. Our tool makes it feel easy and natural to share peer-to-peer employee recognition and encourage a culture of trust.
Communicate honestly to avoid blindspots in your team...
Schedule and prepare for your one-on-one meetings, so you can make the most of that time together. Use 4 different meeting templates, 50+ one-on-one questions, and more.
Uncover how your team feels about the work and culture by asking 1 rotating insightful question. With 150+ questions to choose from, you're guaranteed to learn something new.
Create context so your team knows what's going on...
Get everyone on your team on the same page with a weekly or daily, status update. It's just one question, that saves time, and updates everyone on their progress.
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.
Looking for more hands-on learning? In the Know Your Team platform, we host 60-minute, online, live masterclasses led by Claire Lew, CEO of Know Your Team. Receive live coaching and useful frameworks you can put into practice immediately as a leader.
"It's lonely at the top," people say – but it doesn't have to be. In our highly-moderated online community 1,000+ managers, you get support from people who've gone through the exact same challenges you're facing.
Here are some of the topics we cover:
News - Books, talks, articles, courses or anything worth sharing and discussing.
Company culture - Organization structure, goals, values, mission.
Individual performance - 1-on-1s, feedback, reviews, career growth, promoting people.
Hiring & Recruitment - Best practices, salary range, job description, interviews.
Tough Conversations - Inappropriate behavior, harassment, firing people, conflict.
Benefits - Healthcare, 401ks, paid time off, flexible hours, equity/options, profit-sharing.
Remote Companies - Challenges of building a great remote environment.
More... Growing the business, product strategy, work-life balance, social events.
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.
