Overview of the webinar

Looking to build strong supervisor/employee relationships with each of your employees while also managing to peak performance? Implementing 1:1 feedback sessions can help you do just that, as long as you approach them in a constructive way that your employees will view as beneficial.

This type of meeting is different from coaching, counseling, and corrective feedback. A 1:1 feedback meeting between employees and their supervisors should be time set aside for employees to share their thoughts and concerns with their managers.

This type of meeting isn’t about giving feedback to your employees, but rather about asking them to share their feedback with you – and for you to really listen to what they have to say. When you adopt this practice and implement it effectively, your employees will know they have a voice and that their boss – and company – is concerned with helping alleviate any barriers to their success. As a result, you can expect improved performance, engagement, satisfaction, and buy-in.

Scheduling regular 1:1 feedback meetings with employees are considered to be a best practice for performance management. There is so much benefit to be gained when managers meet individually with each of their direct reports for a dialogue focused on performance feedback and open exchange of information.
