    Meeting Summary:

    Behind the Manager’s Closed Door

    • Do you ever wonder what happens behind the closed door?
    • Are you curious if you are having the right types of conversations with your employees?
    • Do you wonder if you are the only one that leaves some of the conversations with headaches?
    • Are you curious if there are better ways to structure tough conversations with employees?

    If these questions intrigue you, then please join us for our next LRSHRM Meeting Thursday May 11th.

    Lee Hubert, Principal Consultant from Voltage Leadership, will explore these and other critical questions that manager’s must address. We will discuss best practices for 1:1 meetings, how to deal with a challenging employee, motivational ideas, disciplinary conversations, giving recognition and effective team meetings. This presentation will assist leaders become better at the challenging conversations and help them enter these conversations with more confidence.

    So, what should happen behind the Manager’s closed door and when?

    We advocate for Well-Run 1:1 Meetings:  15- 30 minutes in duration and held at least once a month, (weekly for new hires.)  By well-run we mean meaningful interaction with somebody who is actively present and actively participating.  This means no phone, no computer, no texting, and no interruptions.  This builds a trust bridge for great strategic working relationships.   

    1:1 meetings (30 min max) once a month (and ad-hoc as needed).  The main purpose is to Listen, Understand and Exchange Information about:

    1. Assignments / Work-load Balance - (i.e. what’s working well, what’s not, distractions)
    2. Developmental Plans / Activities /Training / Tools - (Internal Customers, 
      Continuing Education Certifications / Degrees, Shadowing, Cross Training, Networking, Tools / Technology
    3. Recognition / Coaching / Staff Feedback- (Shared Successes, Constructive Thought Partnering) 
    4. Feedback for Leader, (Things leaders may not see (blind spot) or need help on)
    5. Other Satisfiers / Dis-satisfiers – (Job enrichment ideas, ergonomics, environmental, etc)
    6. Continuous Improvement / Innovation– (As you drill into new /changed responsibilities) 

    When done with authenticity, Well-Run 1:1 Meetings set up the foundation for performance expectations and directly address any issues in the employee’s world.  This, in turn, makes the performance review almost an afterthought, because you both have already sought out what really matters.
