Squadley is a direct-to-manager platform that is purpose-built to teach and accelerate the most effective routines required to manage a distributed team. By focusing on maximum impact exercises, Squadley improves your Base Management Index (BMI) score over time, ensuring your squad is engaged and always performing on target.

Now available in Beta, Squadley combines research and experience:

  • The core elements of FarsideHR’s ‘Learning to Lead’ classroom knowledge
  • 100+ years of HR & Management development expertise and,
  • Advanced research from The Distributed Workforce Project

To focus on our maximum impact routines:

  • Creating Purpose: Integrated support for vision, mission & values to keep rotating team members connected to ‘why’
  • Cascading Goals: Multi-layer goal creation, alignment and collaboration history at any scale solves for ‘what’.
  • Creating Accountability: Dynamic RACI framework and progress tracking clarifies ‘who and when’
  • Collecting Feedback: automated multi-rater feedback solicitation & dashboards highlights overall team health trends and 360 feedback.
  • Coaching: Manager 1:1 coach notes to invest in members and improve their game. Squadley’s virtual coach provides the manager with intelligent prompts when core routines are getting ignored and BMI is decreasing.
  • Career Development: Collaborate, track and support member development commitments to ensure members are getting their needs fulfilled vs. looking to join a different team.

Don’t rely on disparate point solutions and outdated corporate review-form cadences. High performing distributed teams need to leverage science and modern technology to asynchronously drive results. Yes, distributed teams are harder to manage, but the cost effectiveness and ability to access top talent gives you a distinct competitive advantage when you solve for how. It’s your career and now you can take the leadership fitness leap and commit to your best self with Squadley.
