The Importance Of 1-to-1 Meetings

As a leader or line manager of a team, it’s vital that you check in with staff on a regular basis.

1-to-1 meetings are a great way to dedicate proper time to staff; and to really listen to them and explore how things are going. 

What’s affecting their energy or motivation levels? 

What’s going well? What’s not?

Do they need any help? Or for you to be a little more hands-off?

I’ve experienced 1-to-1 meetings in the past that have been used as thinly disguised performance monitoring tools or even as a way to give people more work. This should be avoided at all costs. 

1-to-1 meetings should be a safe space for team members where they can really be open and honest about what’s affecting them and what can be done to support them – and not as a way of hitting them over the head.

If you aren’t doing this as a leader, then you’re missing an opportunity to provide some pastoral care to employees. Sometimes even just listening for 10 mins can really be cathartic and healing for people.

It’s important people feel someone has their back, rather than being on their back.

We’ll be releasing a fantastic free 1-to-1 meeting question bank and support guide to help you have great 1 to 1s soon!
