According to a 1972 Journal of Communication study, we spend about 80% of our workdays communicating. Sounds about right. Communicate is what enables us to disseminate information, understand what is being communicated, and express how we’re feeling. It’s perhaps the most important life skill to possess and develop.

  • Send pre-meeting and after-meeting notes to your team. Prepare an agenda with high-level topics to discuss and after send notes on decisions made to your team.
  • Follow-up with peers who you’ve given feedback to for past projects. Check to see if they’ve made progress, hit roadblocks, or offer helpful suggestions.
  • Close support tickets for team members until they’ve been fully helped. For pending Trello tickets, ensure all checklist items are marked completed before archiving the ticket.
