Rank #15: #133: How to Run the Most Effective 1:1 Meetings of Your Career

Podcast cover
Read more

Seeking Wisdom is back to discuss the importance of 1:1 meetings – what they are, why you and your team need them, the best 1:1 formats and more. Hint: As a manager, these meetings are all about listening and roadblock removal. Also in this episode, “skip 1 meetings” plus go inside DC and DG’s own 1:1 meetings – and DC’s format to steal for your own company.

In this episode:

Format Tips for Successful 1:1s

  • Strive for weekly 1:1s with direct reports, every other week if you have to
  • Embrace “skip 1 meetings” where you meet every two weeks or once a month with anyone else on the team
  • Keep them casual – go for a walk to get coffee or a juice, get in a room to whiteboard, don’t write everything down, listen instead – this is not an interrogation!
  • Encourage your direct reports to talk by embracing the silence, give them the room they need to talk.

Tips for Direct Reports:

  • Come to the meeting prepared with agenda – DG uses Evernote Notebooks to record what he wants to talk about.
  • Go to the meeting with the top 3 things you want to discuss. If it’s nothing specific, but you want a check in, go for a walk. If you don’t have anything particular, it’s okay to skip these meetings occasionally.

Books mentioned in this episode:

  • Leave a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review and share the pod with your friends!
