One-on-One: 30-60-90

This template is one of two one-on-ones designed by Paul Axtell. One-on-one sessions can truly be a back- and-forth, give-and-take discussion that leads to transparency, clarity, and progress. The best one-on-one meetings are led by the employee rather than the manager.

The 30-60-90 meeting provides clarity about the future and the focus over the next 30, 60, and 90 days.

Use this template to help you prepare for and participate in the next one-on-one with your manager.
