One-on-One: Standard Checking-In Meeting

This meeting agenda 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 "Standard Checking-In" approach works well for weekly or bi-weekly check-in meetings lasting 30 to 45 minutes.

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