One of the key aspects of starting a One-on-One is to start the conversation right. People generally have a weird feeling during One-on-One’s, especially when talking about their growth.
Driving conversations by asking the right question is crucial.
The questions you ask will tell you how they feel about the company & work.
Below are the four important question that kicks-off the best One-on-One.
- Paul, what’s on your mind? - Gives you an idea about what they’re expecting from the meeting or the company.
- What would you like to start with? - Sets the context of the meeting.
- So, what’s going on? - Breaks down the issues they’re facing with other people.
- How’s it going? - Lets people talk about the issues you were not aware of.
These questions have worked for a ton of companies to start a good One-on-One. Setting the agenda right for these meetings are important.
