Closing the feedback loop is critical to an effective 1:1 meeting. Reviewing a Brief gives the manager the opportunity to favorite answers, create comments, and share critical content to the remainder of the team. It also lets the direct report know that their thoughts were heard and that there was value in filling out their brief.
WideAngle does this automatically when you press the review button. The direct report will get a summary email acknowledging that you read over their Briefs along with any feedback that you have left. This important step ensures that you are on the same page when you enter your 1:1 meeting.
