The next time you mess up your schedule, get wires crossed, or are simply slammed for time, turn your hourlong 1-on-1 meeting into a 10 minute one.
“I’m sorry, I messed up, we only have 10 minutes, what do we absolutely need to cover?”
Then cover it.
And see what happens with those remaining 50 minutes, for both of you.
This isn’t a profound idea, but it’s a really useful one.
Unless, of course, you file it away under “someday.”
