Getting managers to hold 1:1 meetings
We want to give you some tips to help you get company managers to hold their 1:1 meetings.

Do you know why they don't?
Try to find out why they don't do it, it's the first step to know how to act. Send a feedback request to the group of managers asking them what is the main problem for not doing the 1:1 at Nailted.

Give them resources to run their 1:1 meetings.

Give them the qualitative feedback you collect about managers.
You can sit down with each manager and give them the qualitative/quantitative feedback that people report on their work as a manager. This will motivate them to perform 1:1's to improve their people management work.

Give them admin access.
In this way, they will have valuable information about their team to use in the 1:1s, which will undoubtedly motivate them to perform them.
