Effective Note Taking

 

Good notes meet three goals:

 

  • Record Keeping
    • Notes should explain what was discussed at the meeting
    • Notes should contain enough detail, but not too much detail
  • Neutrality
    • Notes should not favor one party or any position
  • Clarity
    • Notes should reflect where participants stand on issues
    • Notes should be clear about next steps for the process

 

Karen and Patrice will talk about:

  • The importance of good note taking
  • The challenges of effective note taking
  • Ways to improve your note taking skills
