Guidelines for effective communication
Listen to understand
Try to avoid being repetitive by respectfully showing support when you agree with something said rather than saying it again
Use the “community garden” for issues we need to follow up on
Make room for people to speak who may be quiet or slow to take the floor - if you’ve already spoken, see if someone else would like to speak
What else do we want to add to this list?
