Maybe you’re having an issue with a workmate or would like some extra advice on time management.
If possible, leaving the office to meet at a cafe or taking a walk can create a more relaxed tone to the conversation.
If not, meeting in your manager’s office, a meeting room or anywhere you won’t feel the pressure of being overheard or disturbing others is ideal.
Like many companies today, here at Impraise we have an open office concept.
While we love the sense of community it creates, we regularly go out for walks during our one-on-ones to have a more relaxed and personal atmosphere for discussion.
A major plus: fresh air and exercise actually help boost creativity. Stay on topic If you’re nervous about bringing up a sensitive topic, make sure not to back down when you see the dialogue shifting in a different direction.
