First, I apologize if this takes a MT topic off course. I sense that the relationship-building benefits of O3s probably apply to other important relationships, and I couldn't find any other posts that asked this question.
I recently began holding one-on-ones with my team at work. I have found them to be remarkably powerful, although I've only used them for a few months now. I'm thinking about how I might apply this general concept within my role as a father (I have 4 boys, aged 9 and younger). Has anyone used O3s with your children? If so, what would I change from the general guidance for O3s with direct reports? I'm sure the approach could vary somewhat with the age of the child, etc.
I've asked around a little bit and haven't found much of a consistent theme, although many parents I’ve asked do employ some kind of [u]informal[/u] one-on-one time with each child. But then again, I was informally talking with my team at work before starting O3s and didn't see the big benefits until I started meeting with them formally.
Just trying to cast a wider net to folks who are familiar with the concept and might have some experience to share.
