    Hi all! I have been in leadership for about 6 years now and found lately that I am really struggling with how to continue to have meaningful, relevant, effective 1:1s with my teammates. We go over career progression, goals, how they are feeling about work life balance….what’s working, what’s not…..but they seem to feel repetitive sometimes. Any suggestions on what I could incorporate or change up? I do promote non related work talk as well…. for those that want that. Just looking to shift things up to keep it engaging. All advice is appreciated!! Thank you!!

    Hi Lisa! I’ve totally experienced that same thing! I’ve found that resetting the purpose of the meeting from “my time” to “their time” can create a big shift. They can prepare the agenda and use that time as they want, you can be a sounding board, help them to prioritize, listen to what they’re the most proud of etc. The other thing I’ve noticed if the flow is getting stale it may be time to give them a new problem to solve. Can they take on a stretch assignment? Help you think of creative solutions to a problem and share with you? By serving up a growth opportunity you could likely guarantee something to talk about! I hope that helps!
