Do you need to lead one-on-one meetings in your workplace?

If you do, then you will know it is your responsibility to make them comfortable for both of you, and also an effective use of time. 

One-on-One Meetings Serve Many Purposes

They may be for   

Goal setting   

Performance review – formal and informal   

Tasking and progress monitoring   

Briefing   

Problem-solving and addressing issues   

Care and support   

Guidance   

Coaching or mentoring   

Performance feedback 

…Even reprimands      

But often, people get promoted to a level where they need to lead these kinds of meeting, without getting any training.   

So, in this course, we’ll cover:

The different types of one-on-one meeting   

Planning and preparing your meeting   

Putting together an effective agenda   

How to build rapport   

How men and women each perceive a mixed meeting – with advice for each   

How to listen well   

Questioning skills   

How to adapt to the range of meeting types you’ll need as a manager, project manager, or team leader.

 As a result, you’ll be able to:

Prior Experience   

The only prior experience you need is some exposure to organizational life.   

However, the people who may find this most valuable are those who have tried leading their first one-on-one meetings and so know what challenges you want to work on.
