I've been doing 1on1s for quite a while now. My (one) direct report loved them to start with. Brought his notepad along and it went great. However lately I found that he no longer brings his notepad, I have to drag things out of him, and because of this find I forget to take notes and need to revisit the 1on1 afterwards to get most of the notes on paper.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to breathe a bit more life into the 1on1s?
