    Interesting post on this topic.

    I work in a company, where 1-1’s are valued and used to good effect. From reading your post, it’s clear to me, that the worker (the one who’s work is discussed in the 1-1) is valued by the company. His or hers well-being is the focus of the conversation, and it’s only natural to assume, that being appreciated and seen in one’s workplace, will be the source of happiness and esteem.

    I don’t have much to add, except that I wish more workplaces would apply this approach to employee-leader relations. When I left my previous workplace after 4 years, I don’t think I had a single “1-1″ or anything resembling it. Rather sad to think about, but probably the reality of many, many workers today (not to mention in the past).
