Aligning Your 1:1s with the L2L Tools
Dr. Brené Brown says that “A leader is any person who holds themselves accountable for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage and guts to develop that potential.“
As leaders, our 1:1 sessions are sacred time carved out for us to support emerging leaders and help them develop their potential.
Starting this month, the Leader-to-Leader (L2L) Update + Agenda will guide all 1:1s between leaders. The Leader-to-Leader Agenda and Update tools will allow us deepen into coaching and re-align all 1:1s between leaders in the organization around our four core focus areas: Resilience, Engagement, Experience, and Innovation.
Here is a short demonstration on how to lead your 1:1s –
Leader-to-Leader Update + Agenda
LEADER-TO-LEADER UPDATE – Preparing for your 1:1
The Leader-to-Leader Update tool found on page 20 and at the end of each month in your Triannual I Planner is what you’ll use to prepare for your monthly 1:1 with your leader.
The tool will help you work through key projects and goals within each core focus area and share where you most need support from your leader going forward.
**Having worked through your monthly review, completing the update and preparing for your 1:1 with your leader should only take about 10-15 minutes.
LEADER-TO-LEADER AGENDA – Leading a 1:1
Your leader will use the Leader-to-Leader Agenda on page 21 and at the end of each month in your Triannual I Planner to facilitate your monthly meeting and if your direct reports are also leaders you will use the Leader-to-Leader Agenda to facilitate their 1:1.

Take some time this week to look back to page 19 in your Triannual I Planner to review what you decided needs to be burned to prevent YOU from burning out!
Are there tasks that can be –
*DELETED – removed from your schedule altogether
*DELEGATED – passed on to another teammate who may be more suited to the task
*DEFERRED – postponed to another time
*DONE – completed and cleared from your calendar with just a few minutes of time
Bring these burning ideas (and add some more!) to your monthly review and Leader-to-Leader 1:1s.
