Should directs listen to podcasts?
I told my directs about the one-on-ones and that I wanted to start having the meetings, but before doing so I wanted them to listen to the podcast. I gave them three weeks. Only one of four actually listened. Is it time to give feedback to the other three? The direct that did listen to the cast said "you only want to have one-on-ones so we won't be in your office as often!" That is not my intent. Now what? Should I have asked my directs to listen to the podcasts?
