How to reduce interruptions with recurring one-on-one meetings

Got a minute? How many times do you deal with these interruptions every day at work? If your response is “more times than you can count,” well…you’re not alone.

I recently did a poll that revealed over 70% of people get interrupted with “quick questions” ten times or more PER DAY.

That’s a ton of switching costs!

I have some good news, though. You can do one little thing to drastically reduce these continuous interruptions.

Schedule recurring one-on-one meetings with your team. My team calls them 1:1 huddles.

When you give a definite “when” to ask these questions, you’ll reduce the need to ask them “now.”

Do you have regularly scheduled one-on-one meetings with your team?
