I manage a microtech lab in a university environment. I have 2 technicians and 1 engineer under my supervision. I would like to improve my team management method which is very basic at the moment: no team meeting, only mail and on-the-fly conversations about personal life and work. I know, it's not really good and that's why I've looked for improvement. I really like the one-on-ones idea and would like to implement it. From what I heard in the casts, one-on-ones are mostly used between a manager and his/her directors... does it apply as well in my case ?
What would you recommend ?
