I was writing something about leadership yesterday and thought this interesting:
“...regardless of seniority level, 1-2-1s are considered the most useful meeting in people’s calendars (versus daily stand-ups, team meetings, town halls, retrospectives, and quarterly planning meetings).”
It’s unsurprising that, for employees, the meetings that relate most to them and their work matter most to them too. It is both logical and indicative of human behaviour.
But has this importance of 1-2-1s been lost even though it has probably grown thanks to our pandemic circumstances?
So, how are you using 1-2-1s to improve your people and their performance (and the associated operations and outcomes)? Or have your 1-2-1s ceased or drifted into a review of simply performance stats that’s more rear-view-mirror than developmental?
