Webinar Recording: Run More Effective One-on-Ones Using Visual Tools

Whether you work for a business, nonprofit, or school, 1:1s are essential to moving people—and organizational goals—forward.

While 1:1s can be a critical check-in for managers and employees, too often they can feel like just another meeting to drudge through—too rushed or too unorganized to provide any real value. Even worse, when neglected they can have the opposite effect and leave employees feeling less motivated.

However, effective one-on-ones:

  • Build trust
  • Encourage open communication, honest feedback, and effective collaboration
  • Help people stay informed and aligned
  • Provide mutual feedback for growth
  • Identify and address roadblocks

In this webinar recording—co-hosts Tim May, Creative Director at XPLANE, and human-centered designer Mike Rohde—show you how to use visual tools to make your one-on-ones more engaging, productive, memorable, and fun.
