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.
