Notetaking course: efficient and result-oriented

Taking the minutes of a meeting can be quite a challenge. You simply cannot write everything down, so you have to make choices. But how do you keep a grip on this selection, so that you are not left with a mishmash of words that you no longer understand? This is possible by taking effective minutes. This is mainly about reflecting the essence of what was said and making clear what agreements were made.

During the training 'Taking minutes: efficient and result-oriented' you learn how to properly reflect the main theme of a meeting. You learn what a good structure is for the minutes and how you can elaborate your notes effectively. After the training you are able to take minutes with more self-confidence and to convert your notes into a clear report.

Topics

  • Different techniques for effective note-taking
  • Selective and active listening
  • How can you prepare for a meeting?
  • What must good minutes consist of?
  • Creating an action list
  • Practise techniques for separating main issues from side issues
  • Attractive and clear writing
  • Take clear notes and work them out quickly

Teaching methodology

In the training we alternate between concrete experience, reflection, practising with audio material and exploring theory. This way, the training programme fits in well with all types of participants. There is a lot of action in the training, so you actually experience the effect of how you take minutes. Moreover, by exchanging experiences you can sharpen your way of taking minutes. It enables both the bottlenecks and the recognition of success. In addition, we emphasise that everyone is responsible for his or her own growth process and must take ownership of it.

Target group

This training is ideally suited for participants who will be taking minutes for the first time, participants who already take minutes but would like some tips, or participants who want to work on the presentation of minutes.
