Having Effective 1-1s

Having Effective 1-1s

“We have three innate psychological needs—competence, autonomy, and relatedness. When those needs are satisfied, we’re motivated, productive, and happy.” ― Daniel H. Pink, Drive

In this punchy, practical and social session we'll explore proven and behaviourally driven principles for having more effective 1-1s at work — turning them into individual plans for immediate experimentation.

It's good to talk

In a valuable 1-1, managers and team members connect with purpose around the challenges and opportunities of the day; building their mutual understanding and ensuring that goals are clear and being worked towards. A protected space in calendars, good 1-1s create time for co-creation, coaching and mentoring - for opening up and sharing blockers.

But with busy schedules what they are, and with teams more distributed than ever, it's easy for 1-1s to slip both in terms of their frequency and their focus. And we know from our work with hundreds of managers and team members in all kinds of teams, that sub-par 1-1s is one of the biggest drivers of dis-engagement.

In this positive and hands-on session, we'll work through some behaviourally-driven principles and introduce some tried and tested tools for bringing more shine and impact to the 1-1s you have. All can be applied from the perspective of the manager or team-member, and so all are welcome to join and experiment.
