Everyone is doing one-on-ones, but do we really need another meeting? Can we replace them with other forms of communication? In this episode Chris revisits the “Why” behind one-on-ones, and how they can be the most important thing you can do to build a healthy, productive team.

Show Notes:

For many of us, our experience with on-on-one meetings is less than stellar. Talking about the local sports teams, the weather, the weekend or  simply giving status updates feels like a waste of time for both managers and team members. In a business climate that is more competitive than ever, why should we spend more time in meetings? In this episode, Chris revisits his recent blog post that explores why one-on-ones may be the most important thing you can do to build great teams and keep your best people.
