When it comes to 1:1 meetings, what are you struggling with most? (I.e. getting the team to contribute to the agenda, moving beyond status updates, building trust, etc.
What keeps you up at night?
Psychological safety: Do you have it? How do you create it?
How do you balance needing to drive alignment on the team while making time for trust-building on the team?
Prepare some questions

What's your approach with 1:1 meetings?
