Here’s a weekly one on one format I like.
I find it helps keep the conversation focused on big-picture career development.
How does it work?
Throughout the week, we add notes to the following sections and then discuss them in person.
- Personal Career Mission. An overview of an individual’s professional goals and interests.
- Actions. Small tasks that an individual can carry out before the next one on one.
- Achievements. Any initiative beyond the scope of the essential job.
- Gaps. Areas of improvement.
A neat outcome of this approach is that at the end of every quarter, we have a long list of achievements to celebrate.
