For frontline leaders and their team members, a one-on-one meeting is nothing short of a great opportunity to demonstrate how much they care about mutual success.
An effective one-on-one is an important item in the front-line leader’s toolbox, specifically to:
- strengthen the relationship
- celebrate good work and key accomplishments
- discuss improvements needed
- set or adjust goals and checkpoints
- offer resources and other support
- solicit and appreciate feedback
- encourage open communication
And, with a good system and a bit of planning, this can all be achieved in a bi-weekly thirty minute meeting.
