4 Effortless Tips To Make Your 1:1’s More Productive

Helpful ways to make the most out of your coaching appointments.

by Now Answer Group on April 30, 2019

Let’s face it, as a business owner, you wear many hats. You’re one person doing the job of multiple people. It’s difficult to take just a few minutes to sit down with someone for an hour to discuss business operations, muchless prepare for that hour.

Here’s the deal- the work is up to you. What you put into your meetings is what you’ll get out. But I promise, your business will thank you!

4 Simple Ways to Get the Best out of Your 1 on 1’s:

1. Write It Down

Not interested in toting items around? Voice memo apps simplify note taking. Often times, carrying a pad and pen isn’t practical. Using a voice app will allow you to save thoughts and add them to a document at your leisure.

Yes, carry a pencil and small notepad with you… Everywhere. When you conceptualize a thought or question, just write it down. It’s better to record an idea you think is insignificant, than to forget something that will make a huge difference in your business.

2. Be free of distractions

Experiencing your 1 on 1 in a distraction-free space will help stay focused on what you and your coach need to cover. Shut off the TV, radio, and seclude yourself during your appointments. The information given during your sessions are valuable- you don’t want to miss a thing!

3. Notes, notes, notes- again

You’ll receive an abundance of information during your meetings. Again, it’s important to retain important information-  having your notepad to jot down notes during each one on one will make the best out of your meetings.

It’s been said that people only retain 30% of what they hear and 50% of things they see AND hear. Make your notes colorful to make important topics to stand out.

4. Don’t hang up until you set up a game plan

The job of your coach is to problem solve issues that are holding your business back. Part of this process changing how you’re reaching  your goals. Confucius said, “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”. Your coach is here to help you stay on track of your goals, then assess what is and isn’t working.
