Good article! My favorite opening question in a 1:1 is “What’s going well?” I like it because it’s positively oriented and sets the expectation that (at least some) things are going well. Then I like to follow that with “What should we be talking about today that will make your job easier/better?” And I would likely include something like, “Anything else you think it would be helpful for me to know?”
