Have you ever avoided applying for a job because it indicated you needed minute taking skills?
Do you avoid eye contact at a meeting when they are looking for a minute taker? Maybe even come to the meeting deliberately late so that you won’t be chosen?
Does the thought of taking minutes scare you to death? Worry that you don’t have shorthand and can’t write fast enough?
You are not alone.
Most people learn to take minutes from copying the previous minute takers example, but what if you have no previous example? What happens if what they have created in the past doesn’t make sense to you? Most people are not even remotely confident when it comes to taking minutes because they were never taught how to take minutes.
Our introductory webinar “Introduction to Minute Taking” will give you the skills you need to get started. We will ensure you walk into your next meeting knowing you can do what they need you to do.
The purpose of minutes (what are they designed to do)
What should minutes contain (and why)
What should they not contact (and why not)
Why you shouldn’t be taking verbatim minutes and how to take minutes without the common “Mary said, Bob said” mistake
