Have you just found a shiny new employee or do you have employees that have been there for a while? Regardless of which, you have a relationship with your employees as their boss. And just like any relationship it’s not going to stay good if you do the wrong things. Your relationship requires a little maintenance and the best way to maintain your relationship is by having high-quality One-on-Ones with your employees as I show you how in this mini course: 3 Steps 2 Easy 1 on 1s with Your Employees. (The course includes best practice one on one meeting forms, a one on one meeting agenda and tips for fast, effective One on One meetings with your employees.)
ONE ON ONES WITH YOUR EMPLOYEES INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY AND RETENTION
Having one on ones with your employees determines whether they stay and perform or whether hiring them turns out to be a waste of your time. Because:
- One on One Meetings keeps work moving forward and on time,
- One to One Meetings gives you a chance to align priorities to get what you want,
- One to One Meetings build relationships with employees which mean they become more loyal and less likely to leave
But ultimately One on One meetings is what keeps bosses and employees happy. Because 1 on 1 meetings are where you resolve any pinch points before they become serious issues.
START NEW EMPLOYEES OFF RIGHT & BE A BETTER BOSS FOR YOUR EXISTING EMPLOYEES
It doesn't matter if your employee is brand new or if your employee has been there for years. Investing a little time with your employees by covering the right agenda always pays back time, money and effort.
If you've never had a one on one meeting or if you've had hundreds, there is always something to learn and that's why I've made a short course for you. You can register for the free bite-size lessons here (Includes a one on one meeting template, a one to one meeting agenda and one on one meeting tips). I wish I had known about this when I first became a manager because I could've saved myself a lot of stress, a lot of time plus progressed faster in my career.
