The work environments are complex and the time is short, especially if you are a manager. General meetings with all the staff are good but it is not the only way to guide the work of each member of the group. Time is precious, and you can not waste it, but for a manager to invest time to meet each member of his team can be productive. In fact, he can specifically guide the duties of the individual employee and give advice to achieve certain goals.
Obviously, not everything is easy, because the employees can “answer” each one in a different way to the individual meeting (for example, an employee can give vague answers to the questions asked, or not feel comfortable in a one to one meeting, or, hopefully, react very positively). If you are interested in organizing one-on-one meetings with employees (or simply curious), the site Labmanager with this article provides excellent tips.
