One On One Note-Taking Recommendations
This guidance describes some simple improvements most managers can make to help them take better notes during their One on Ones.
Sometimes pedestrian things loom large. One on Ones are the most important recommendation we make. We get LOTS of questions about them. In the forums, from clients, in email, and at conferences. Over the years, we've gotten used to being asked about how to take notes, or, often, how does Mark take notes during HIS O3s?
What's funny about this is the sense we get that some very simple operational details seem to really capture people's attention. Herewith, then, are our simple note taking recommendations that we love and others swear by too.
