Prepare For Your One-On-One Meetings

The single most powerful leadership practice for accelerating the performance of your direct reports is conducting weekly one-on-one meetings with them.  If you are not having regular one-on-one sessions with your direct reports, start.  If you are having these sessions, make sure you are well prepared.

  • Prior to each session ask yourself these questions:
  • Did I do what I committed to do?
  • What do my follow up notes say I need to check on?
  • What do I need to be sure to communicate?
  • What additional positive feedback can I give?
  • What additional course corrections are needed?
  • Is there something I can delegate?

Effectively preparing for these crucial meetings will make an even greater impact on the performance of your direct reports and empower them even more to succeed.
