Schedule Planning Meetings & Debriefings
Once you’ve booked your trip, fit it under budget, locked down an itinerary, linked up the appropriate loyalty programs, and settled on a method to track expenses—you should schedule a planning meeting.
This is a good way to review best practices, while also establishing goals for the trip with your colleagues. If you’re uneasy about traveling, consider meeting over coffee or at an external location—somewhere away from the office, to ease the pressure and expectations of the trip.
Once you return, schedule a debriefing meeting in a similar setting. Discuss what you liked and didn’t. Document your thoughts, and save them in your files. You can build up these as references as you travel more. If you’re traveling alone, or work alone, you can apply the same practice: Set aside time to review scenarios, both before and after your trip.
