The real pupose of 121s is to build a relationship.
An honest, robust, respectful constructive relationship.
This takes time, effort, curiosity, courage, honesty and a degree of self disclosure.
An effective relationship helps us to understand self interest. Ours and the self interest of each and every team member.
Once self interest is understood we are in a position to make agreements that work for all parties – to establish win wins.
It allows us to provide support, encouragement, development and opportunities that helps others become much more powerful and effective in their work.
“Raising someone up does not reduce your stature-it exalts you in ways you have to experience to believe.”
