Meeting Norms:

  • We are collaborative and solutions-oriented. Please arrive at all meetings ready to work with colleagues in identifying potential solutions to what are often complex problems.
  • In order to use our time wisely, we will be present both physically and mentally, starting and ending our meetings on time.
  • We will communicate effectively and be concise when we speak—encouraging respectful participation and inviting a wide range of perspectives, while managing our own “air time” to ensure everyone has the chance to speak.
  • We will address conflict by dealing with the issue, not the person or people involved.
  • We will ask questions when in doubt.
