Taking notes in Meetings

Never think about taking notes as a weakness.

Don’t rely on your memory for key information, tasks or due-dates.

Whether you are with your boss, a customer or even your staff, have a pen and notepad ready to take down notes. If you can quickly and quietly take notes on a tablet or laptop, that’s ok, but often a notepad is the least intrusive.

Begin the meeting saying that you’ll be taking notes. Then, if you can’t write fast enough, ask the other person to wait while you take down the important information. Instead of feeling put-out, you will demonstrate your interest in what they say.
