Running effective 1-2-1 meetings with your staff can be daunting. Even more so if you've just become a manager or supervisor and it's time to run your first one. Let Alex show you how to run meetings that will leave you and your team feeling super, confident motivated and more importantly, listened to.
Understand how to get your mindset ready to conduct 1-2-1s
Understand what each of your team's motivators are
Learn how to prepare for a one to one meeting
Know how to structure the meeting to get the desired outcome for you and the team member.
Welcome to the course of motivational meetings for managers. Now we’ve all been in meetings with our own managers were left and actually felt less motivated than when we went in. And the chances are your manager also felt demotivated.
It could be that some of the individuals in your team have been in meetings with you and felt worse afterwards. So why is it that people found meetings so hard? Well, there is just so much going on in meetings and time and again, I get asked for my tips and tactics to help people and managers feel better about being in review meetings. So, what we are going to cover on this course is, first thing we are going to do is, help your mind-set get straight for one to one review meetings. How should you be thinking about the meetings that you’re going to be having.
Secondly, we are going to think about, do you really understand what makes each individual in your team tick? If you don’t know what their motivators are, the likelihood of you changing their behaviour, is almost zero.
We are then going to think about, how do you actually prepare for one to one meetings? Often, if you haven’t prepared, it’s very difficult to cover the things you want to cover in a way that will motivate them.
And the last thing I’m going to do is give you a super simple structure to run a one to one review meeting.
Hopefully that will give you all the skills you need, to feel much more motivated yourself when you next go into a meeting to motivate those in your team.

Really helpful. I particularly found the FAST approach very useful and used it the next day in my 1-2-1s .

What a brilliant course and Alex really manages to get some very important points over in a clear motivational manner. I especially love the TED questioning process and FAST review. Really enjoyed the whole course, thank you.
