Do you have a thoughtful process in place for 1:1 meetings with your direct reports? If not, you might fall into the trap of using the time to run through your employees’ to do lists.
While getting status updates on important projects is important, checking in on tasks shouldn’t be the only focus of your 1:1 meetings.
This 1:1 template will ensure you’re asking the right questions to effectively support and coach your employees. Best of all, this template works in Asana, Excel, or even a plain ol’ Google Doc.
For maximum success, customize your 1:1s according to individual behavioral preferences. That could mean tailoring the questions you ask—or tailoring the way you give feedback—based on the employee’s Reference Profile.
