- One-on-ones are the foundation of equitable leadership
Amy Chantasirivisal, Director of Engineering, Unicycle
Amy begins by asking, if you're using 1:1s for status updates, why isn't your project management tooling covering that so that you can spend 1:1 time on other topics? Instead, she recommends covering: • Overall sentiment • Team member's topics • Growth and development • Giving feedback • Asking for feedback • Self-care • Leaving space She also recommends asking yourself these questions as a manager: If you're a leader reading this, my challenge for you today is to mull over these questions, and seek out the answers if you don't know: • How much of my time is spent being reactive instead of proactive? • Do I have a plan for how I can help set each of my employees up for success? • If members of my team were to resign today, what would reason(s) would they cite?
