Couldn’t agree more on this point. You can tell the priorities of not just the leader(s) but also the organization as a whole when you start seeing managers “skip” their 1:1’s or find some other lame excuse not to do them regularly.

I have known far too many organizations who feel like these things are just “throwaway” meetings and give them a ton of lip-service. Great companies invest in their staff and 1:1’s work.

Get them done and if you work in an environment that doesn’t prioritize these then go find another company to work for and with.
