The Power of One on One Check-ins

Listen and hear from two teammates from Connecticut, Amanda Szychulski, Clinical Coordinator, and Dora Harris, Group Facility Administrator on this week’s DaVita Leadership Insights podcast. Amanda and Dora share their experience around the power of one on one check-ins with Grace Berman and Doug Miller. One of the biggest takeaways from practicing one-on-ones regularly is that this is key in building relationships.

Amanda’s One Tip:

Lead with your heart and before going into a conversation, treat the person on the other end of the conversation the way you’d like to be treated.

Dora’s One Tip:

Add the one-on-one appointment on your calendar and hold yourself accountable. If you have to miss it—move it! Don’t just skip it.

“These are powerful because it gives your team time with you, and time can be one of your most valuable resources. It gives you the opportunity to get to know them on a personal level.”
