Good one-on-one meetings between managers and their direct reports address the practical and personal needs of the employee, benefitting their performance, growth, and well-being, as well as the success of their team and the broader organization. However, since managers are typically the ones who run these meetings, the employee’s needs are often forgotten. Then it’s up to the employee to ask questions to get the attention they require. The authors’ research points to twenty-eight questions that can drive the best conversations.

Richard Feynman, a renowned physicist, felt burned out after the death of his wife and working on the Manhattan Project during WWII. He felt that he couldn't possibly live up to the high expectations others had of him. However, when he was invited to participate in an elite research institution, he realized that he had no responsibility to live up to what people expected of him and dropped his perception of those expectations. By setting the right standard and forgetting these expectations, Feynman went on to have an enormously influential physics career.

Leaders who micromanage their team limit its effectiveness by controlling the work to the extent of their personal reach.

Managers should embrace realistic stakes in projects, establish checkpoints and limits, and teach the team how to solve problems through effective collaboration for better results. Todd Henry, a renowned creativity consultant, encourages leaders to establish practices that lead to everyday brilliance.
