Meeting amnesia

Often, we end up in the same bad meeting over and over again, just because no one remembers what was discussed in the last meeting.

Schedule a short five-minute team debrief after key internal and external calls to avoid meeting amnesia. These debrief are especially important in a fully virtual environment since it’s easy for meeting leaders not to notice when employees (especially junior ones) leave a call confused.

Ways to overcome

  • Make it routine to keep track of what was said and what was meant and share those summaries with attendees and any relevant stakeholders who weren’t present.
  • Do not capture a full play-by-play of the meeting, but rather provide a concise synopsis of the key points and action items in a format that makes the information as accessible as possible.
  • Periodically reviewing this documentation can help your team decide whether these meetings are productive.
