I have a DR who went to my boss and quit yesterday. She said she felt like she was being micromanaged by O3's and quarterly reviews. Said that she is self motivated and should not be constantly reviewed like this. Her DISC profile is C, but a very talkative C (almost like an I).
Now my boss does not want me to do any O3's, or only do them bi weekly or once a month. He says at some point people have to be accountable by themselves. My boss is a S.
So I'm guessing that there is a combination of things going on here. One, I recognize I may be conducting the o3 meetings wrong and making it too much about what the direct is delivering to me vs what is on their plate. I am a D/I.
I need suggestions on how to be more effecting during the O3's. I do see them as a valuable tool and I don't want to lose them. However, my boss now sees O3's as the direct cause for a valuable employee leaving the organization. What am I doing wrong?
