It is the month of July, which means that you are either already done or just about done with mid-year reviews with your team members. If you haven't scheduled them yet, or your company doesn't have the policy to do mid-year reviews, I highly recommend that you still have these discussions.
I just read again today a classic from C. Merle Crawford, "Strategies for new product development," Business Horizons, Dec. 1972, pp. 49-58.
This is an interesting presentation about new product development strategy: http://www.slideshare.net/nusantara99/new-product-development-strategy
Much at the beginning is not new, but the points from page 25 are worth reading: what a Booz-Allen and Hamilton study found in common among companies with successful new product innovation practices.
Who is doing most of the talking during the 1:1 meetings with your team members; you or your team members? Whatever your intent for the 1:1 is, you need to master the art of listening. If you spend most of the time talking and not listening, you might miss a great deal of what your team member is trying to tell you.
