One-on-ones are the most important tool you have to effectively manage and develop your employees, but for many leaders they are seen as a time waster and the first thing that gets cancelled when the calendar gets full. This course will reveal how to change your one-on-one meetings from something you dread to something you value and anticipate. We will first discuss three misconceptions and errors related to one-on-one meetings. Next we will explore the four elements of a successful agenda that will not only allow you to get the information you need to be successful but to more effectively guide your team to incredible results. In the third segment we will discuss the occasional performance focused one-on-one. This one-on-one allows your team members to know where they stand on performance, behavior and career development 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.

I have a one-on-one coming up next week for a new employee and have some performance issues to address. This course was very informative and will give me the tools to guide a meaningful one-on-one meeting with this employee. I also recognized some communication tips that will help me to communicate more effectively the objectives of a project and how to check in on the status in an organized and meaningful manner.

Excellent course, particularly meaningful in a virtual work environment as supervisors navigate remote employee relationships and 1:1 meetings by necessity take place more frequently. Good strategy around structuring these meetings. I especially liked the idea of the direct report having responsibility for the meeting agenda. Course is well worth it.

Glad I didn't pay additional money for this course. The same information was delivered in Having 1:1 with Boss. In some cases the words on the slide were not even changed to the Employee point of view. The content was valuable, I just didn't need to receive it twice.

good course to go along with one on ones with your boss. Similar material covered in both but from 2 different perspectives. It shows how one one ones are important in both situations.

I perform 1-1's monthly with my team, but I have always driven the meeting. This gave me ideas to empower the team member to come prepared with their own agenda.

This was a good course for higher level managers and I would recommend it for them only. Managers with direct line employees would not benefit as much.

Good helpful reminders for managers. Stressed the importance of frequency which is often forgotten or meetings are often cancelled.
