I've been doing O3s with my directs for about a month now. I'm surprised that only once in all my O3s did a direct want to talk about something work-related.
I know that it's very important to hear about family, outside interests, etc. But is it normal to have such a strong tendency toward "non-work" banter when the direct is spending her 10 minutes?
I don't mind it at all, but I'm just kind of surprised by this.
