Unlock the Power of 1:1 Meetings: Boost Employee Engagement by 300%!

Are You Maximizing Your Most Valuable Resource?

It's no secret that many people feel overwhelmed, overworked, and underappreciated in their jobs. Across various industries, employees are expected to do more with fewer resources – and the most critical resource of all is time. Time is our most valuable commodity and the great equalizer. Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day, but it's how you use that time that makes all the difference. One of the most impactful uses of time, when done right, is the 1:1 meeting. Studies show that employees are 300% more engaged after a strong 1:1 meeting.

Maximize Your 1:1 Meetings for Greater Engagement

Many managers struggle to leverage this precious time effectively. Often, these meetings are sporadic, spontaneous, or merely a response to negative situations or status updates. Recognizing that leaders are also coaches, 1:1 meetings offer a golden opportunity for managers to:

  • Motivate and inspire their teams by celebrating wins

  • Provide positive and constructive feedback for continuous growth and development

  • Create opportunities that align with employees' career aspirations

When executed well, 1:1 meetings are a game-changer, elevating individuals and entire teams to the next level.

7 Ways to Create a Winning 1:1 Meeting


  1. Prepare – both sides need to think ahead, provide an agenda, come with relevant topics & questions & schedule in advance

  2. Keep a Cadence – commit to regular, immovable, 1:1 meetings 1x/week or 2x/month depending on the individual & their tenure

  3. Turn Off – silence cell phones, turn off notifications & be fully present & engaged for the entire meeting

  4. Start with Wins – kick off the meeting by celebrating wins of all shapes & sizes, share good news, focus on the positive & give lots of praise

  5. Be Constructive – give & receive honest & helpful feedback to increase awareness, identify blindspots & improve performance

  6. Take Action – end the meeting with clearly communicated action steps, expectations, deadlines & details

  7. Write It Up – capture the information from the 1:1 meeting in writing so everyone has a copy & can use it a reminder & point of reference
