I participated in a panel on the topic of one-on-one meetings for LeadDev Live in Summer 2020.
One-to-ones provide perhaps your greatest opportunity to survey how well things are going with your team.
But a perfect one-to-one isn’t always the easiest thing to craft. Sometimes they can become overly operational or focus only on short-term steps. And for some people opening up in a one-to-one can be hard, and unless you put in work into making a space safe feel safe, you may not be able to grasp what’s really going on.
In this session, we’ll be exploring the art of the one-to-one, discussing how to build trust so that your team is willing to share what’s going on, and think about how to adapt one-to-ones to a remote environment
