how to run 1 on 1 meetings

In the virtual world 1:1 meetings are even more important. Proactively affect team performance with these 4 tips.


Why & When?

What is the purpose of this 1:1? What is the scope and frequency? This needs to be discussed with your team member to check if that works for them.


What outcome do you want to achieve? What do both parties need to think about and prepare?

The Core of the Meeting

Your focus may be on short-term priorities, giving feedback, or problem-solving. This is also an important time to ask them for feedback – How you can improve things for them?

Summary & Next Steps

This is a crucial part of a 1:1 (and all other meetings) but it’s often neglected. It’s important that you are both confident that there is a shared understanding.

Now, take a step back and think about your 1:1s and how you can use them as a mechanism for brilliant leadership. Good luck!
