Today’s tip comes from Scott Belsky, the founder and CEO of Behance:

At the end of every meeting, go around and review the action steps each person has captured.
The exercise takes less than 30 seconds per person, and it almost always reveals a few action steps that were missed.
The exercise also breeds a sense of accountability. If you state YOUR action steps in front of YOUR colleagues, then YOU are likely to follow through.
