Podcast offers tips for great one-on-one meetings

If you are anything like me, you are looking to stay current and gain a few lifehacks (that’s slang for best practices) while going about your day-to-day activities. Enter the Comp + Coffee podcast.

Comp and Coffee logoIn the March 4 episode, Courtney Bigony, the Director of People Science at 15Five, discussed one of the most-important communication tools we have as employees and leaders: The one-on-one meeting.

A few great takeaways included:

  • why that very first one-on-one is so important with new employees;
  • structuring meetings in ways that create more value than lists of task status updates;
  • goal-setting for one-on-ones;
  • how to solicit and respond to feedback and set priorities so the employee, team, and manager are all successful and engaged.

I could tell you more, but the team at Comp + Coffee really said it best themselves.
