Regular one-on-one meetings provide managers with an opportunity to head off problems and efficiently answer the many small, quick questions that arise during the workweek. In this course, Dave Crenshaw shows you how to establish a one-on-one meeting schedule and agenda, assign and review actions items, and assess the results of the meeting and follow up on promises. The course also explains how to effectively listen to employees' needs and when to offer training and development.
Part of the success of future meetings will depend upon your success in completing your action items. This means that if you can come to every meeting and show the other participants that you keep your commitments and you meet your deadlines, then you'll earn their trust. They'll learn they can count on you, and they'll likely give you greater respect in the workplace. Now, just a comment to go along with that idea. When you complete an item that comes out of a meeting, report back.
Send an email or a note to the person you committed to and let them know that it's done. Now, if you completed it just before the next meeting, of course you can report back in the meeting itself, but it's usually helpful to other people to let them know the moment you've completed a commitment. Every time you do that, it relieves a small burden off their mind, so they don't have to wonder if you've got it done. Complete your commitments and those you work with will feel a great sense of trust that whatever they give you, you'll get it done on time.
