Conducting One-on-one Meetings
One-on-one meetings with co-workers can be as informal or as formal as you want. But if you wish to conduct a meeting that is time-efficient and relevant, follow these guides to conducting a better meeting:
Write your agenda. The meeting may not onvolve a lot of people, but if both you and your co-worker have busy schedules, the agenda can help you manage your discussions quickly. Just make sure you follow the agenda to avoid straying from it.
Send the meeting invite with your agenda attached early enough. This will make sure that your co-worker is ready for the meeting as well.
Select a suitable venue for your meeting. If your office has an open arrangement, you might want to make use of a small meeting room. This way, you can have the privacy and comfort that will make the flow of ideas come easily.
Make sure that you have all your materials with you. If you need a presentation, then make sure you have it prepared. Control the situation, if you are the one who initiated the meeting. Again, always follow the agenda.
