A successful relationship between employee and manager requires more than a single one-on-one per month, so you may want to pair this agenda with our weekly one-on-one template.
The reason for two separate agendas is the higher-level focus of the monthly one-on-one. Where a weekly meeting might address more immediate concerns and challenges, the monthly meeting gives both manager and employee a chance to step back from the day-to-day. From that more distant viewpoint, new insights will surface and you can tackle different problems.
This is the mental framework from which we built this meeting agenda. And it’s why this agenda template is built around discussion topics that encourage a broader perspective. Rather than defaulting to a discussion about whatever priority is the most immediate, these one-on-one questions structure the meeting to be more strategic and growth-oriented.
