Use case: Professional development


Using Sapeum for note-taking results in shorter prep and review, and consistency and best practices, for:

  • professional development chats
  • performance review compilation
  • 1-on-1s with team members


Using Sapeum for quick analysis pulls out insights like:

  • top development areas by team member
  • key achievements for a particular employee
  • important upward feedback


1. Highlight and tag notes during (or after) a 1-on-1



Spend 30min training the team to use only these 4 tags (for instance):

Tag/highlight Description
Highlight One of the most important things that came up in 1-on-1s
#win A key achievement or win for this team member
#dev-area A key development area for this team member
#example A referencable example to quote in a performance review
#followup An item to follow up with the team member on


2. Share a quick summary of a single 1-on-1

Executive summary


3. See your outstanding followups across all 1-on-1s

All followups


4. Summarize each #win reaction or #dev-area by team member

Digests by key tags


5. Auto-detect key topics, and additionally filter down to #win for instance
