Recently I switched positions within my company, and my new supervisor employes little to none of the effective management principles outlined in Manager Tools. While I have been able to advocate for weekly 30 minute sessions, the meetings end up being over an hour, with her speaking for the first 50-60 minutes.
Recently, my supervisor has requested updates on everything I am working on prior to our 1:1. This stymies my opportunities to ask questions or explain pieces of the projects in our 1:1. What is the best way to handle a situation like this and try to restore effectiveness in our 1:1's, when I am not in the driver's seat? Right now 1:1's feel more like a "talking to" than a "talking with", if that makes sense.
Thanks in advance for the feedback.
