Take note!Oct 31, 2023
"Why take notes... you can get AI to do it?"
That's a modern question... but gets an old fashioned response
🟠 Orange Hat Thinking 🟠
I will answer why I do in sales and coaching calls
🔶 Aid thinking
It helps me to think when I write stuff down
It means it has to pass through my brain first so I'm considering what I'm actually making notes of
🔶 Picture worth a thousand words
I'm a visual thinker.
Quite often I will draw a picture which helps me make sense of what people are saying
🔶 Slow down
It slows me down
In doing so it means that the other party can continue to talk
I don't want to miss information that they are thinking about
🔶 I hear you
It shows I'm listening
Rather than just staring at the person letting the AI do all the work when I'm taking notes, people know that I'm actually paying them attention
Not all meetings are held in the virtual virtual environment.
Some are still old school, where I need to capture the information this way
I don't want to lose the habit
Hopefully this is useful for people as they develop their own meeting skills
Above all let's remember why we are having meetings
🧡 Help people think
That is where we can add value as sales professionals
The focus is on the customer
Notebook, AI, EA, PC, photographic memory... whatever
