Thought I'd share a note about the power of O3s and a recent experience I had. I'll keep this brief.
One year ago this week, I was promoted out from my peers to lead my team. As of right now, I'm sitting on a plane and about to go hand my team off to a new manager at another firm (it's a long story).
When I started my team down the Manager Tools path with One On Ones, I was very worried (especially as a new manager) about the pushback I would receive. But, I followed the guidance to the letter and out of my entire team only "Lisa" made an issue out it (but begrudgingly complied anyways).
Their soon-to-bemanager gave me a call this week and asked, "So...what are these One On Ones? Lisa said they were the best thing any manager has ever done for her."
To sum up:
- Initially resistant direct likes O3s enought to evangelize to her new boss.
- Manager Tools spread to another firm.
Easily the best day in the past year of being a manager.
Thanks, yet again, to the Manager Tools team for all you do.
