Leaders are generally terrific individual achievers, but they usually make mistakes when it comes to one-on-one check-ins. They either pay insufficient attention to their subordinates or overwhelm them with communications and requests for information. Finding the right degree and cadence of interaction can be difficult. People require their own space to communicate with their immediate supervisor; thus, these sessions must be well-organized. In the end, one-on-one conversations are about responsibility and consistency. Structure your check-ins around the updates they have for you, the decisions you need to make, the progress they’ve made, and the obstacles that are impeding progress to ensure a successful one-on-one.
