Have an effective 1:1

3 action items

  • 1. Focus

    Don't bring your laptop, put your phone on do not disturb, and try to listen actively.

  • 2. Keep it short

    Long 1-on-1s can get into the weeds, and cover too much ground to be actionable. I like to keep mine around 15 minutes.

  • 3. Don't skip them!

    Regular cadence is important. Don't let the other person skip, either — reschedule if needed.
