Effective One to One and Supervision Meetings: Tips for Managers

Being a good manager means moving from being reactive to being proactive via regular dialogue with staff

In this episode 198 of the podcast I bring you my tips and ideas on how to have effective one to one and supervision meetings with staff.

One of the things that many managers struggle with when managing people is maintaining regular meaningful communications with staff.

In this episode of the podcast I cover:

  • What is a one to one and supervision meeting.
  • What is the difference between a one to one and a supervision meeting.
  • Why it is important to incorporate in your management of staff.
  • Why it does not have to be a complicated process.
  • Why it is effective in improving performance.
  • The steps needed to hold effective one to one and supervision meetings.
  • What to include in your conversation.
  • Why follow up is critical to success
  • How it will save you time in the long run.

When preparing for one to one’s or supervision meetings I strongly recommend you read the work by Gary Vaynerchuck on Kind Candour.

You can read a blog post on it here:

Alternatively his book, Twelve and a Half: Leveraging the Emotional Ingredients Necessary for Business Success is even better as a resource for managers.
