I just heard your podcast on One-on-Ones. My situation is quite unusual in that my manager does not really see the need for One-on-ones. How do I convince him of the benefits of one-on-ones?

I recently joined this company, and at my previous job, one-on-ones were conducted regularly and religiously by everyone. But at my current job, no one seems to care about it. I have asked my manager when and how he would like to conduct one-on-ones but he just brushed it off saying that we can meet when ever we want, and we sit right next to each other and we talk all the time, etc. I hesitate to suggest that he listen to your podcasts, because that might imply that I'm telling him how to do his job :-(
