Master the One-on-One Meeting

Master the One-on-One Meeting | Change for the Better | Scoop.it

Whether you’re a CEO or a line manager, your team is just as important as a group as its members are as individuals. Today’s tech companies offer many perks to attract and retain the best employees. We offer competitive salaries, training and the promise of success—professionally and financially. But how we treat them as individuals can determine the way their DNA will impact the fabric of your organization. What are you doing, as their manager, to make sure they are satisfied and making the best contribution to your organization?

 

Whether it’s an hour a week or 30 minutes once a month, making time for an individual says you give a damn about them as a person.

The 1:1 is the only forum where you can have an honest, private, conversation with each other about what’s really going on—professionally and personally.

This is a routine opportunity for you, as a manager, to assess the parts (your employees) that lead to the productive whole (your team)—which we all know is more powerful than the sum of said parts.

The one-on-one meeting between supervisor and staff is an invauable tool for managing, but requires much attention to detail. 

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 26, 4:09 AM
The one on one meetings usually take place before annual assessments of employee performance. Appraisal reports are often preceded by a one on one meeting with the employee. In many cases, misunderstandings are removed when these 1-1 meetings take place.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, May 6, 2014 6:55 PM


Making the right decisions consistently, and avoiding the howlers that come back to haunt a business, should be a key objective for all business owners.


All decision making comes with a certain level of risk, and part of mitigating the risks involved in day to day decision making, is for a business owner to be able to determine why they make decisions that are not always optimal for the success of their business.


This excellent article, suggests that keeping a decision log is a tried and proven way of consistently making sound decisions, and it offers a four step process to follow when conducting regular reviews of recent decision making activity.

Do you suffer from a bad case of perfectionism? Many business owners do, and the pursuit of perfectionism robs them of a lot of the time needed to complete all of the tasks they need to do, in the hours available to complete them all. If you need to unlearn this need to be perfect in all you do, and thereby gain back many hours every week, then the tips in this article will be very valuable for you.

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast | Change for the Better | Scoop.it

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.Why? Because company culture, a concept pioneered by Edgar Schein, is the operationalizing of an organization’s values. Culture guides employee decisions about both technical business decisions and how they interact with others. Good culture creates an internal coherence in actions taken by a very diverse group of employees.

J'aime beaucoup ces propos :

"“You can’t complain here,” Tamara explained. “If you see something wrong, you must fix it. We say it is a great opportunity to come up with a solution, and this is where many of our best programs have come from. Anything can be changed. We aren’t victim to anyone. We own the culture.”"

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, June 11, 2014 1:23 AM

Culture matters and it matters immensely!

Tobias Beckwith's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:27 AM

This seems to be a theme for my day... this is the third place I"ve encountered the idea, and it's not even 9am yet. When we seek to create change in the world, all too often we ignore the most powerful thing working against us - the culture in which we're working. So how can you work with that? Make your change "fit" the culture? Find ways to change the culture itself?

The Neuroscience Of Effective Leadership

The Neuroscience Of Effective Leadership | Change for the Better | Scoop.it

What do you get when you cross your grandmother’s advice with the latest research in neuroscience?

 

According to Eric J. McNulty, this unlikely intersection holds the key to being a good leader. As the director of research at the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, McNulty is often asked to recommend the latest and greatest reads on leadership. What he’s discovered is that books on brain science serve up sage insights more often than the traditional title penned from the corner office. He’s also observed that scientific research on the brain reveals what his grandma knew all along.
