According to ‘How Google Works’, Google’s 1-1 model is summarized as follows;

  • Performance on job requirements = Work & delivery focused
  • Relationships with peer groups = People and effectiveness
  • Management/Leadership = Coaching, guiding and feedback, are you working hard enough at recruitment
  • Innovation/Best Practice = Are you constantly moving forward, learning new things

As an alternative way to structure 1-1 meetings, focus on the 4 key topics of Work, Team, Management and Mastery WTMM.

* Work: performance delivering work requirements

* Team: relationships with peers and team

* Management: feedback, coaching & motivation

* Mastery: new learnings & opportunities, training goals
