4 Note-Taking Tips to Use at Meetings

If you want your meetings to actually count for something instead of being a time sink, you need to put effort into it. Robin Renford has a few easy notes on how you can, well, take better notes.

Master the Meeting

Use pen and paper, because it provides the least barriers between you and the speaker. Learn some form of shorthand so that there is no net loss of speed from having a lack of keyboard on hand. Try to plot the outline of your notes even before the meeting begins, doing your best to center data around key points. Then prepare a written report using the notes as soon as you can after the meeting, even if a formal report is not required. It can be used as a guide and point of reference in the future.
