How to use this template

Most managers understand that it’s important to schedule regular check-ins with every employee. What’s harder to figure out, though, is how to make the most out of those regular check-ins.

In a nutshell, that’s what this agenda template is for—to help managers and their employees have more collaborative, productive weekly one-on-one meetings. A weekly one-on-one ideally accomplishes multiple purposes:  it builds rapport, encourages growth, and improves productivity. 

But maximizing the one-on-one is not solely up to the agenda. The effectiveness of this meeting also depends on the collaboration between the manager and the direct report.

Asking questions during your one-on-one's is a great way to do this. The agenda template here offers many examples, but you can customize it with other questions from this list of sample one-on-one questions.
