Ben Horowitz once described 1:1 meetings (also spelled as one-on-one or 1-on-1) as the “free-form meeting for all the pressing issues, brilliant ideas, and chronic frustrations that do not fit neatly into status reports, email and other less personal and intimate mechanisms.”

Use 1:1s to build rapport and empathy between teammates. Turn this type of meetings into a habit as a team building exercise.


  1. What is one thing I can do to make your life better at work?
  2. What activities at work give you energy these days?
  3. Would you like more or less feedback on your work? If so, what additional feedback would you like?
  4. What activities would you consider are not a good use of your time?
  5. Is there anything else you'd like to mention? If so, please write it down.
