Teams on Leapsome are groups of employees to which a particular skill framework is applied. A team on Leapsome can be a formal team within your organisation (e.g., the Marketing or Product team) but also any group of employees with a certain role (e.g., all Junior Marketing Managers, all Frontend Developers or the leadership circle).
Creating a team allows you to define a specific team skill framework for this group so that you can collect team-specific feedback (and view team-specific reports).
Our advice on teams is to keep it simple when you get started with Leapsome and to not become too granular - you can always modify your settings later. Try to get started with as few teams and different skill frameworks as possible.
Creating a new team
On the team admin page, select Manage teams, click Create new team, select a name and define who should be an admin of the team. Admins will be able to modify the team skills framework and can see aggregate statistics for that team.
Defining skills for a team
Any admin can add or modify skills for that team on the “Skills” page. Keep it short (no more than 5 skills per team) and, importantly, avoid overlap with general skills.
To add a new skill for a team click on "Add skill". Select a short title, add an optional description and pick the category that suits best. If the skill is only relevant to a specific team, please disable the option 'This skill applies to everyone'. You can then add several teams.
Adding users to a team
Adding users to a team is easy - just click Add and start typing to select a team. Once a user is member of a certain team, we will start asking for feedback on that team's skills in each feedback session.
