If you are going to show up, add value.
If you put in the effort to be there, contribute.
If someone invited you, they need your input.
It’s really that simple.
If you are physically present, make every effort to be mentally present.
It’s far too often that people show up and don’t add value. You don’t want to be that person.
Another person you don’t want to be is the one who spends the whole meeting trying to impress everyone with how smart they are. Those people are incredibly frustrating.
Your team doesn’t need a lot from you, and they don’t need anything that you can’t offer. They need you present. They need you attentive. They need YOU!
Do you have a question? Are you confused? Does something not make sense? Bring it up.
Do you agree? Does the presenter need support or confirmation? Let them know.
