Do you wish that your team could become more accountable, more creative, more trustworthy? Do you wish that your team could produce high quality results in less time and with less drama or less reliance on you?
The answer lies in a simple, yet much neglected leadership habit: the habit of high-quality one to one meetings that focus on developing a trustful relationship that nurtures the confidence, critical thinking, creativity and attention to detail that every manager wants.
Most one to ones are pretty poor quality – rushed affairs focusing on fire fighting and driven by a manager who wants results. Instead, a real mindset shift is needed to slow down, offer the gift of attention and listening in order to get the results and relationship you really want.
