Started listening to the podcast about 6 months ago when I found out I was going to be promoted to a management position. First time manager, 28, all of my directs are older than me.
I started one on one's and for the most part they have gone well. One of my direct's is the highest D (DISC) I have ever encountered. It causes a lot of friction in the organization, but she asked in our last O3 if we could move the meeting to once a month instead of once a week. I told her no because I believed a 30 min meeting (that usually ends up being 15 because she hasn't opened up to me yet), is not a waste of our time.
Was this the right response? Any other advice on getting her to open up too would be welcome.
