Meetings

Remember the game, Telephone, that we played as kids? One person would whisper a message to the person beside them, and they would whisper it along to the person beside them. When the message reached the end of the line and the last person shared aloud what the message was, it was never the same as the original. Everyone would laugh at the garbled end result. That was fun. The same thing has happened with your minute taking, only it isn’t fun. And for your company, it can be downright problematic.

Minute taking does not have to be difficult.
