 Im leading a team of 3 (2 temps and 1 full time). The 2 temps are working for our company on a long term basis. All of us are reporting to a regional manager abroad. being the senior guy locally, im tasked to be the team lead. My questions would be:

  1. Can I rollout trinity to them?
  2. If yes, I can follow the cast on O3s with contractors where 15mins for them and 15mins for me. Right? They're contributing to our overall performance being the condition discussed in the cast. 
  3. Can I rollout to the full time guy? if yes, should i do the same 15:15 or do the normal 10:10:10 format?

I would say that you should absolutely proceed with your FTE.
Be careful though with your contract workers. There may be legal reasons to not move forward with a similar process for them. Since they do not technically work for the company, this may be seen as blurring the lines between full-time and contract labor.

With that being said, you have everything to gain from improving your relationship with the FTE so I would begin the process of moving forward with that one.

Thanks Mac

what format would you recommend? 15:15 or 10:10:10?

I would do the 15:15 and build it from there.

You should be able to progress to the 10:10:10 in the future as you gain a better understanding of their goals and how to steer them along that path.

I was recently made a team lead of my team and i started doing O3s within a few weeks of the change. I have been using the 15:15 and find it's working well. I'm still amazed how quickly the time goes. Our manager still has monthy O3s with each team member and I have weekly 'status update' meetings with her. I find that my O3s with the team help me in my reporting and in building my relationships within the team. I'm getting ready to start with feedback in a couple of weeks and i'm really looking forward to it.

Good luck, i hope everything works out well for you.

thanks cruss. you seem to be doing pretty well. I've already sent my 2 temps the O3 email and i'll start at the end of the month. My full time guy just passed his interview on another department so i decided not to push through with him yet.
