When I receive a new meeting invite before I've even spoken with a colleague, I reach out and ask about the purpose of the meeting so that I have some context.
Once I understand what my colleague wants to discuss, I'll do some work ahead of time so that we can have a meaningful discussion during the meeting.
When I review the invite details and my schedule, I may need to propose a new time and duration for the meeting so that it fits my schedule.
After I send the updated invite, I want to know as soon as it's accepted, so that I know our meeting is confirmed.
On the day of the meeting, I like to get a reminder 30 mins before the meeting time, so that I can quickly prep for a meaningful conversation.
During the meeting, I write down a list of action items for us to follow up on together after the call so that we don't drop the ball on execution.
As we complete our tasks asynchronously, I tag my colleague in comments so that he'll receive updates on the work completed without needing another meeting.
Once we've accomplished everything we originally set out to do, I like to walk my coworker through the work we've accomplished so we identify any loose ends.
