- Be prepared and come ready to engage. Read the agenda, notes from the previous call, and do any preparatory work ahead of time.
- Balance your participation—speak and listen—and make sure everyone’s voice is heard.
- Look ahead to positive action, not back on ‘shoulda, woulda, coulda’.
- Stay Focused. Everyone is responsible for helping to stay on topic—capture off topic items in a ‘backburner’ and agree to discuss them later at a more appropriate time.
- Be concise and to the point.
- Be open to feedback.
