Tips on how to show up in meetings

  • Realise your responsibility. You owe it to your team to share your perspective.
  • Ask for agenda items and the meeting's purpose to help you prepare.
  • Ponder on the topics, and find information in advance so that you can vocalise your expertise.
  • Speak with your body. Show that you are 100% invested in the discussion.
  • Say something stupid. If you don't, you're not sharing enough.
  • Stop taking notes. When you take notes, you speak less.
  • If you can't add to the conversation, ask more questions.
  • Consider how to serve meeting attendees.
  • If you can't share your thoughts, do so after the meeting.
