Use a parking lot on a whiteboard or flip chart during meetings (13/34)

When the conversation starts to go off on a tangent, tell folks you’re going to put the topic into the parking lot. Jot down a note on the topic and the name of the person who brought it up. Then refocus on your primary purpose. At the end of the meeting, it’s up to each person whether or not to attempt a separate conversation or meeting on their topic.
