Steven Rogelberg on The Art and Science of 1:1 Meetings

December 20, 2023 - 12:00pm to 12:30pm

There are approximately 200 million 1:1 meetings a day around the globe. Yet, the research clearly shows that 1) the effectiveness of these meetings is far from optimal; 2) that managers self-ratings of their skills in conducting these meetings is inflated and not aligned with their directs. Hence, an incredible opportunity exists to fill the skills gap and maximize return of a tremendous time investment. Join Steven Rogelberg and Jeffrey Hull as they preview Steven’s book Glad We Met: The Art and Science of 1:1 Meetings and discuss how to realize the full potential of every 1:1 meeting, without feeling like you are just wallowing in wasted meeting time.

Rogelberg, an organizational psychologist, holds the title of Chancellor’s Professor at UNC Charlotte for distinguished national, international and interdisciplinary contributions. He is an award-winning teacher and recipient of the very prestigious Humboldt Award for his research on meetings. Adam Grant has called Steven the “worlds leading expert on how to fix meetings”. His new book, Glad We Met: The Art and Science of 1:1 Meetings will be released in January 2024.
