Whether you are a manager, or a managee, chances are you have at least 1 weekly 1:1 meeting.
1:1s were initially created to remove blockers and aid check on the employee fulfilment. However, they often turn into a live reporting session which brings no benefit for the manager, or the employee.
Surprisingly, a report from Hypercontext showed that 78% of managers still have a non-collaborative way of keeping their notes, with 34% still using pen and paper. This makes it hard to prepare and lead an efficient meting with an open dialogue between the manager and the team member.
Using a simple tool, such as a page on Notion, shared between you and each one of your team members will boost transparency, trust and will have a huge impact on the overall success of your team.
🎁 What’s inside:
➡️ 4 templates for 1:1s (I divided characters in 4 different types, based on my observation on how people act during 1:1s -> Socialites, Reserved, Junior or Classic)
