- Establishing a consistent one-to-one meeting schedule…is a critical tool to improving time management.…Now, I do have a course on the library…about holding effective one-to-one meetings,…yet many people wonder…why even have these meetings at all?…The biggest reason is that most people in the workplace…are treating each other like human vending machines.…They're constantly peppering each other…with quick questions,…and these quick questions have a lot of switching cost.…Also, it's getting in the way of people…doing their own critical thinking.…
Instead, what you want to do…is be able to focus on your most important work,…your most valuable activities,…and then have a set time to hold those meetings.…Now, how do we hold those meetings?…In general, the idea is that you ask them your questions,…and they ask you their questions.…It's that simple.…But the idea is that we need to do it on a consistent basis,…that both of you decide, hey, we don't want…to interrupt each other anymore,…let's set a consistent time on our calendars…
