MM your pod casts are well explained and you’re eager to explain things better after the pod casts are outstanding. Thanks for the show.
A month ago I was hired in the government sector as a Director in the IT world. I have 15 people in my team, from those we have 2 administrative assistants, 2 general managers, 1 for each office, and the other 11 people are distributed among the two departments.
Last week I started doing one on one with everyone. It was a great experience, most of the people enjoy them, and most also talked over the 30 minutes. Also, it was very good, because we got to know better.
The reason of my post is the following questions. I understand that O3s are not meetings for skips, so what should I do? Should I continue doing O3 with all, for a few weeks and later delegate that to the general managers?
In my initial O3 I talked to team leads that report to my general managers, some are not doing any admin stuff, just technical work, and they are not taking care of their direct reports. Maybe what I am describing is not an O3 problem; I just want to hear some suggestions.
