“On the 5th day of Christmas a Manager said to me…
DO I REALLY HAVE TO DO THESE 1:1’s?
🌟(Sing along to the 12 days of Christmas song!)🌟
(4) What can I delegate?”
(3) How do I give feedback?”
(2) Who are my team?
(1) I don’t know what’s expected of me!”
1:1’s can take time. Time to schedule, time to prep for, time to run, time to write up etc. And we all know that one of the biggest enemies of Managers is lack of time, right?
⛄️ One of the key points of 1:1s are to allow team members individual time with their manager to discuss what’s going on for them. If they feel rushed or like they’re an inconvenience, they simply won’t open up
⛄️ Find a frequency that works well for you both (Newer team member may benefit from more frequent, structured meetings, while more established members may prefer a more relaxed approach.)
⛄️ Doing your regular 1:1s will help with any annual review later down the line
REMEMBER ... DO THEM, but do them in a way that works for the you, them and the company!
🎄Keep a look out for further days of Christmas to help develop Manager skills!🎄
