One-on-Ones Templates

1-on-1 meeting - The classic (short version)

Check in with your team member during your bi-weekly one-on-one.

The benefits of bi-weekly one-on-ones

One-on-one meetings have always been a pillar of good management. They are a moment to meet with each person on the team and have meaningful conversations. Without one-on-ones, it becomes challenging to touch base on their work, engagement, and professional development.

As a manager, it’s important to maintain the long-time practice of one-on-ones. Meeting with your employees shouldn’t be something you do every once in a while. It needs to be constant for these meetings to have a real positive impact. One great way to make sure you meet with every employee is to schedule in advance bi-weekly meetings.

These are the benefits of bi-weekly one-on-ones:

  • They build stronger relationships with each employee over time.

  • They give you a chance to give and receive feedback.

  • They are an opportunity to check in on their work and prevent blockers.

  • They give you more insight into each person’s personality – their unique strengths and opportunities for development.
