6. Take Notes of Off-Topic Questions and Concerns
Meetings can easily get off track or off subject. This can cause a multitude of problems, but it doesn’t mean off-topic discussions should be entirely shut down. If there is a subject, question or concern that is not on the agenda but needs to be discussed, have it written down. When we take notes of these topics and assign someone to follow up with them, we ensure that important topics are still addressed, but that they don’t detract from other topics.
