A one-on-one, is by definition, a meeting between two people - a manager and their direct report. It’s a dedicated time where employees can ask questions, receive coaching on their strengths and weaknesses, and provide feedback. It’s important to use these opportunities to foster positive relationships with your teammates. 

If this is the first time that you are partaking in 1-on-1, and are unsure with what to talk about - we have a lot of resources available on our blog. Whether you’re an IC or a manager, we’ve got you covered. 

Here are some of our favourites: 

1- Schedule recurring 1-on-1s weekly or biweekly in your Office or Google Calendar

2 - Link these events in Fellow

3 - Collaborate on a meeting agenda.

If you have a reporting relationship with someone (manager-direct report), then you will see "Suggested Topics:" on the right side of the note, right above the private notes section in your 1-on-1.

4- Add any private notes

[optional]: You can star this meeting on the home page

Now you should be all good to go to have a great 1-on-1!
