Make it actionable

During most meetings, the conversation will inevitably range from vague to actionable.

At any point, people may feel like they’re following what’s being said and may feel like they know what to do once the meeting ends.

This is a dangerous feeling.

If it’s just a vague understanding, there is no way for all parties to understand exactly what is going to be done.

If you want all parties to be on the same page, it’s worth the extra discussion to outline the actionable steps that each party will take.
