When you are in meetings, it is good to get in the habit of taking notes for yourself. This is another way to stay engaged and interactive. It makes sure you capture any follow-up action items and key points of interest. If you have your own notes, you do not need to rely on anyone else to recap the meeting. You may find your notes handy to review when summarizing your weekly highlights in your 1:1s. However, don’t get assigned the role of “official note taker” for meetings because you want to make sure you are available to participate fully.
