A one-on-one is a scheduled, face-to-face meeting between you and an employee. As the name implies, the participants in this meeting are just you and another person.
Unlike other meetings, like those about status updates or employee performance, the one-on-one is less formal. It can address a wide range of issues that don't fit in other discussion or meeting types, such as concerns and frustrations relating to work or any inspiring ideas the employee may have.
As a manager, part of your duty may be to hold one-on-one meetings with your employees to check in on them and discuss issues of importance. To get the most out of a one-on-one meeting, it's important to understand why they're important and how to conduct them. Done effectively, they can strengthen your professional relationship with your employees and increase their morale and engagement.
One-on-one meetings often feel more hurried and disorganized than they need to be. It’s important to check in regularly with each of your employees, but how can you make the best use of the time?
How can you make the meetings more productive and collaborative?
What do you need to change as the manager and what do you need to ask your direct report to do differently as well?

As a certified public accountant (CPA) and a certified fraud examiner (CFE), Mr. Dawson recognized the need for a single-purposed company devoted to fraud prevention, detection, and education. As a result, he established Dawson Forensic Group to combat small business fraud through forensic auditing, litigation support, accounting records reconstruction, internal control design consulting, and anti-fraud training services.
The company has continued to expand in staff and levels of service due to the increasing need for small businesses to accomplish the necessary goals of establishing sound internal controls and developing effective anti-fraud programs
