Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing a schedule, part of Leading Productive One-on-One Meetings.
After you've decided on a handful of people that you should meet with on a…one-to-one basis, the next step is determining the schedule for these…one-to-one meetings.…There's no perfect answer to how often you should meet and how long the meeting should be.…However, I can give you some rules of thumb based on my experience of working…with companies of all shapes and sizes.…The most common one-to-one meeting schedule is two times per month at 25…minutes per meeting.…So, if you don't know where to begin, that's the place to start: two meetings…per month, 25 minutes per meeting.…
However, that's just the baseline.…Most of you will know what's more appropriate for the people on your one-to-one list.…So, if you feel that meeting twice per month isn't enough, then schedule…meetings more often.…However, the more often you meet, the shorter the meetings should be.…So, if I say that I need to meet with Faye every week, then I would probably…want those meetings to be just 15 minutes.…On the other hand, the less often I meet, the longer the meetings should be.…
