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:
- Can I rollout trinity to them?
- 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.
- 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
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.
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.
yes, do it.
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
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.
