In this episode of Transform Your Workplace, host Brandon Laws sits down with Dr. Steven Rogelberg, the Chancellor's Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Dr. Rogelberg shares insights from his book, Glad We Met: The Art and Science of 1:1 Meetings, exploring topics such as the managerial role in effective 1:1s, the wide-ranging benefits, and practical implementation strategies for this foundational aspect of effective leadership.



  • In his book, Glad We Met: The Art and Science of 1:1 Meetings, Dr. Rogelberg emphasizes the transformative potential of one-on-one meetings in organizations and for leaders.

  • While the agenda should be driven by the employee, managers play a vital role in creating an infrastructure to ensure the effectiveness of 1:1s.

  • 1:1 meetings improve employee engagement, retention, team performance, and contribution to inclusion efforts.

  • The blueprint for effective 1:1s focuses on building agendas, involving the direct report, and maintaining continuity across meetings to tell the story of the employee's progress.

  • For managers handling a large number of employees, the episode suggests practical strategies to focus on quality not quantity β€” adjusting meeting frequency, reducing time per meeting, and leveraging asynchronous documents for follow-through.
