Use One-On-One Time To Strengthen Relationships

It’s a fact that humans are more likely to extend themselves for another human if there is a relationship between them.  Strong relationships inspire people to go out of their way for others.

An effective relationship between a leader and their direct report contributes to everyone’s success.  The best way to work on this relationship is during regular one-on-one meetings.

Leaders should sincerely ask about their direct report’s family by name, inquire about their hobbies and interests, and even know about their pets.  Leaders who care about their direct report’s lives outside of work will get them to move mountains for them at work.

Leaders who get to know their direct reports and empower them experience more success.
