Facilitate effective meetings with direct reports.

I am here to tell you that the single most effective tool managers have at their disposal is the one-on-one meeting. You heard me right! It’s the meeting that is actually productive!

A weekly one-on-one is a powerful way to maintain alignment, productivity and employee engagement. When designed right, it can be absolutely critical to the success of your organization.



Investing just a little bit of time into this training can help you:

STOP WASTING TIME and resources.

There is nothing more frustrating than finding out your team member has been working on the wrong task, is way behind schedule, or is wasting resources. This not only is a loss of time but also a loss of money. By introducing a weekly O3 as a regular practice, you can save time, money, and a lot of frustration!

Maintain alignment and productivity.

Despite their busy schedules, industry leaders say the O3 is the most important tool to keep their team working towards the right goals. This in turn increases productivity.

Design the most effective MEETING YOU'VE EVER HAD.

Without the right agenda, your best efforts will be wasted. Asking the right questions to get the most out of each meeting is crucial.

LEADxAcademy Member
I was a micro managing boss that cared about the results, and how they were achieved more than the people achieving them. I found LEADx about 3 months ago, and as I listened and interacted, my life changed. Because of the lessons taught by you, the guests of LEADx and the curriculum of the LEADx Academy, Ive been able to completely rewrite my approach to leadership and associate development and engagement. My Q12 scores went from 67 to 90, In 6 months.
