Your 1-2-1s have lost their mojo

Your 1-2-1s have lost their mojo.

You’d rather escape.

What’s wrong with you??

Things that might be on your mind…

• Sigh… Meetings always run over time
• If they do run on time, well, what was the point?
• The conversation goes all over the place
• My partner disappeared into a rabbit hole
• I am not “in the room”…
• Silences are creepy
• “Someone” is multitasking
• Why aren’t they taking my recommendations on board?
• Why aren’t they thinking of something new?
• Meh, another venting party
• I know this already, let me tell them what we’re going to do next.
• Yes, I am a problem solver…should I, though?
• Too many emotions in the room
• I need to interject again here.
• [What else?]

Findings show that employee engagement can drop by up to 30% when managers fail to listen effectively (HBR)

SIS International Research (NY) discovered that 70% of small to mid-size businesses claim that ineffective communication is their primary problem. Their study found:

— A business with 100 employees spends an average downtime of 17 hours a week clarifying communication.

— This translates to an annual cost of more than $525,000.

— Managers and office workers earn 40% of their salaries listening; executives earn up to 80%, but the vast majority only half-listen.

— Human resource professionals estimate that more than 80% of the people who fail at their jobs do so for only one reason: they can’t listen and communicate effectively.

But… the comforting fact is that each of us holds the key to a uniquely powerful process for liberating the human mind, at work, in the community, at home.

If only we let it.

Come along to my next Thinking Partnership course online on August 22, 23 and Sept 20 (9:30 to 4pm UK BST  with plenty of breaks!) to turn your 1-2-1s around,  start listening and thinking with joy, and be a supportive partner to your team in the process.

I’ll have space for 6 people max. 🍀
