Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Training and development, part of Leading Productive One-on-One Meetings (2012).
Every one-to-one meeting gives you the opportunity to provide some focused…training and development for the other person.…Now, because one-to-one meetings by nature are going to be rather short, it's a…good idea to keep this training short as well, about five to seven minutes.…Each training session should involve a "what" and a "how?"…The "what" is the concept you're going to teach.…The "how" is the method you'll use to teach that concept.…You're only going to have enough time to cover one concept per meeting.…
