Bottom-line idea

When you meet with employees, begin by stating your “what and why”—what you want to discuss and why now.

Explain that you want to, say, solicit their ideas, isolate a performance issue or share information they need to do their work. Then describe why you want to talk with them now.

Summarizing your purpose and the timing for your talk enables employees to place the situation in context and respond more forthrightly.
