This Month's Speaker

Topic of Main Talk - Better 1-on-1's for Managers

As a manager, you will know that running 1-on1's is a vital part of your leadership. 1-on-1's will allow you to partner with each team member to further their career progression, identify skills deficits and align each individual with the goals and values of the team and/or organisation. Are you doing this? Do you know how to do this?By the end of this powerful webinar you will:

1. Understand what a 1-on-1 is and isn't.
2. Gain an understanding of how to set up and structure an effective 1-on-1.
3. Use two practical tools to create better 1-on-1's which will deepen employee engagement.
