I am new to management and was part of a team I am now managing. This makes things harder.
My question is, I have 8 technical report in an engineering services group. I listened to the 3 one on one pod casts but have a question... Do one on ones take away from the team theme? The reports I have work as a team so is it more important to have a staff meeting once a week or to have 8 one on ones each week? Is there a good mix?
Currently I set up a weekly staff meeting on Thursday mornings and am doing 1 one on one each week. I also make sure I touch base with each report once a day or more.
Appreciate your opinion
