Workshop 1: How to conduct effective one-on-one meetings

Do you meet regularly with your staff?  Do you find these meetings frustrating and a waste of time? While regular one-on-one meetings with staff can be the most effective way to build employee engagement, team morale, and improve performance they often devolve into ineffective “update” meetings.  

In this interactive workshop participants will learn the five practices that drive effective one-on-ones.  Participants will take part in exercises to develop their skills. Finally, they will learn how to avoid the four common pitfalls that derail one-on-ones.  By the end of the session, you will have practical skills you can take back to your workplace.
