I have a manager reporting to me that has about 12 DRs. She is doing daily 5 minute briefings with each of her DRs and a longer meeting with the two DRs that have a more senior role in her group.
In her O3 today, I suggested moving to the 30-minute weekly format for the O3s with her people, but she is resistant. She feels the daily update is more timely and that she can't afford to lose two half days with 30 minute meetings.
I think this is more of a control issue for her rather than a time issue. She wants to stay intimately connected on a very detailed level with what each of her DRs is doing each day rather than pull back to a weekly level view. She is a high S, BTW.
Any thoughts/ideas on how to motivate her to follow the model and pull back a bit?
