One-on-one meetings between managers and employees have always existed. However, they are getting much more attention lately. I believe a big contributor is the focus on continuous performance management. Which makes sense. Why not use regular communication as a way to strengthen performance.
Organizations need to remember that the one-on-one meeting becomes successful when managers and employees have a good meeting. I know, this sounds basic, but when we read about all of the unproductive meetings that take place, it’s doesn’t make sense to assume that managers and employees know exactly what to do in a one-on-one meeting.
