Hello! I've been listening to the podcasts and would like to start one-on-ones.
I'm a little unsure how I should introduce it to my staff. "You're going to meet with me for a half hour. You can talk about whatever you want--your kitties or your work or your great grandmother. I just really want to get to know you!"
It just feels weird to me. And I think, if I were called in to my boss's office and told "Talk about whatever you want!" I might look at them like they were crazy.
I think the idea is great--just expressing it to my staff in a way that they will understand the point and what's expected of them.
Is there a podcast for this? I did not see one...
