The 1 on 1 meeting.
A lot of us have them on a regular basis. They may be useful meetings to check in with managers or direct reports. They may be time to catch up on workloads, responsibilities, or even just a chance to connect.
For as many of us that have meaningful 1 on 1 meetings though, an equal number of us are frustrated, indifferent, or even hesitant to establish any sort of regular, consistent, individual check in meetings with our managers or direct reports.
But why? Why does the 1 on 1 meeting elicit such a strong response from so many of us?
