Make Sure The One-On-Ones Are About Your Direct Report

We’re approaching the time of year when the holidays come fast and furiously.  Your direct report may have family members coming to visit, or they may be traveling out of town for the holidays. College students may be re-entering the home.  Parties may be hosted, homes decorated, and baking prepared.  Of course everyone faces shopping, wrapping, and sending of cards with varying degrees of interest.

The very things that may bring one direct report happiness and excitement may bring another stress or depression.  One-on-ones are designed to be about the employee and their success.  Simply asking about what they have planned for the holidays may give you an idea if they are anticipating the time with trepidation or excitement.  That knowledge may play heavily into your delegation plans, milestones on projects, or resources deployed to projects at hand.

Empower your employees by delegating and supporting their workload based on all of their commitments.
