How 1-on-1s work

Pair with a teammate to create a 1-on-1 meeting agenda.
Step 1: Start a new 1-on-1 mission and select the teammate you’ll pair with, as well as your meeting cadence and time.
Add agenda items to Candor for check-ins, feedback, and more.
Step 2: Get a recurring reminder 2 days before your 1-on-1 meeting to review your shared agenda and make any updates in preparation.

Step 3: Check off items you discuss together, and any items that aren’t covered will automatically be moved to your next agenda. No fuss!

1-on-1s frequently asked questions

What topics should we cover in a 1-on-1 meeting?

At Candor, we believe 1-on-1 meetings should be reserved for unblocking team members, sharing live feedback and checking in on higher level progress. Typically async work check-ins are better for detailed progress reports.

If you aren’t sure how to approach specific topics in your 1-on-1, you can also utilize our library of prompts and easily add them to your agenda.

What happens if we don’t get to all the agenda items during our 1-on-1 meeting?

Once you’re done discussing an item from your agenda, you’ll check off the item to signal it has been discussed. If you don’t have a chance to discuss an item and don’t check it off the agenda, it’ll automagically be added to your next 1-on-1 agenda.

What should we do if there aren’t any agenda items added before we do our meeting?

We recommend cancelling the 1-on-1 meeting if there’s no outstanding talking points to be discussed. 1-on-1 meetings usually get a bad rep for being unproductive — which makes sense if you go into them unprepared! If you and/or your teammate don’t have anything added to the agenda, just cancel and get the time back.
