Making yourself understood at meetings
So meistern Sie ab jetzt jedes Meeting

Clarifying

"That means that we only have 5 weeks to implement this project."

"What I'm trying to say is ..."

"In other words, what I mean is ..."

"The point I'm trying to make is ..."

Confirming

"Yes, I see what you're getting at."

"Yes and no, it seems a bit of a contracontradiction to me."

"I go along with you when you say X, but not with Y."

Checking everyone agrees

"Does anyone object?"

"Is there anyone who thinks otherwise?"

"I would like to hear any objections at this stage."

"Anything else anyone wants to add?"

Summarizing

"So, if I could just summarize what we've said ..."

"I think we've covered everything. So, we've decided that ..."

Concluding

"So I think if there's no other business, we can draw the meeting to a close."

"I think we can finish there then."

Warning! Common mistake!
When talking about deadlines, e.g. "bis morgen", use "by" and not "until".
So:
by 5 o'clock today,
by Friday,
by next Tuesday.
