Silence your Smartphone in meetings to boost efficiencies

smart phonesEncourage others to adopt acceptable etiquette when engaging electronically in a group:

  • Make an obvious point of silencing your cell phone
  • Mention the need for an uninterrupted meeting
  • Ask electronic offenders if everything is “still okay?”
  • Avoid Electronic Interruptions

Technology brings us closer to those who are far and can distance us from those who are near. Establish guidelines to ensure electronics don’t interrupt your conversation.

Electronic interruptions are best addressed before they pose a problem. By emphasizing the importance of dodging distractions, and silencing your cellular pointedly, others will hopefully follow your lead.

You’ll inevitably experience bad behaviour, so be prepared to reinforce your regulations. To draw attention to their bad behaviour, ask if they are still okay to continue, as they may not even realize they’ve been distracted by their smartphone.

Thanks to Karen Turner from Turner Efficiency for sending us this tip.
