Hello all,

I am new to Manager Tools and want to get started ASAP with O3's. I am a manager of a manufacturing facility with 19 direct reports. We work a compressed work week of basically 80 hours over 2 weeks. It is a 4-3-3-4 schedule and are 12 hour days. 3 of the 19 are leads for specific functional areas who I interact with on a daily basis. Would it acceptable to start O3's with all the other directs without including the leads. Or would a bi-weekly meeting with everyone be effective in my situation?

Thanks in advance!

By your posting it seems that the leads do not write annual reviews. As such, the guidance generally is to do weekly reviews with all 19. (I've had 14+ directs and done weekly O3 meetings.) With your distinctive schedule you could start weekly O3 with the leads and bi-weekly with the balance of the group.  Just doing the O3 meetings puts you ahead of many managers!
