1:1 meetings are on everyone’s calendar. But, they are treated poorly, often cut short, moved, or canceled. And yet, I believe this is one of the most important meetings on your calendar. Here are 3 tips to maximize these meetings:
(1) Prepare an agenda. It keeps your boss on point and ensures your most important topics are covered before time runs out.
(2) Remove weather reporting from this meeting. Send project updates in an email. Use this time to get your boss’s help and input.
(3) Make sure at least one 1:1 meeting each month is 100% about your career. Discuss the steps it will take to get your dream job at the company and the role your boss can play to help you get there.
