One-on-ones are extremely important meetings with your boss that allow you to align, collaborate and connect. But if done poorly they can end up being a time waster and be the first thing that gets cancelled when the calendar gets full.

We will first discuss several misconceptions and errors related to 1:1 meetings, including who owns the agenda, and what to focus on for the discussion.

Next we will explore the four elements of a successful agenda that will not only inform your boss but manage their perception of your value to the organization. In the third segment we will discuss the occasional performance focused 1:1. This 1:1 allows you to know where you stand on performance, behavior and career development at key points throughout the year. At the conclusion is a checklist for you to use to ensure your next 1:1s add value to both you and your boss.

This course was very informative and practical. She identified so many areas that we fall short on when having 1 on 1 discussions. Easy, practical advice to implement. She provided great real life examples as well. Great course!
