With every project in the workplace (whether it is an internal, or client-facing project) comes many meetings. Your calendar can be filled with meetings, and whether you follow an agenda in a meeting or not, conversations during a meeting can jump around. Project updates, goals and objectives, roadblocks and risks, responsibilities and timelines can be main discussion points during a meeting, and it is important that each person involved is getting the most out of the hour that is blocked out on their calendar.
From my experience at Codal, one way to be a better team member is to always clarify what your deliverables are, and what the deadline is at the end of a meeting. At the end of your meeting, state what your deliverable is, when it is due, and your understanding of the task. This ensures that each team member is well-aware of what they have to deliver and that everyone has a clear understanding of what the next steps of the project look like.
