Fine-Tuning the One-on-One Meeting

A quick talk with a colleague or the boss may not seem like a "meeting," but you should treat it like one nonetheless. Even a telephone call puts demands on your ability to organize your thoughts and get your points across. No matter how brief, one-on-one meetings are chances to communicate, and to do it well. Here are some tips:

  • Start on time.

  • Have a clear purpose.

  • Devise a good opening.

  • Be positive.

  • Listen well.

  • Summarize your key points at the end.
