Do you pay full attention?
Assume you have a meeting with one of your employees: Does your employee have your full undivided attention? What if your phone rings? Do you take the call during the conversation?
What’s your answer? A lot of managers respond:
“It depends who is calling and if it is important!”
“No, of course not. I don’t take the call”
How does a true leader respond?
“My phone is never ringing when I am in a meeting with one of my employees. I will always turn it off. Calls are forwarded to my secretary. If it is really important she will let me know.”
How you handle phone calls in a conversation shows if you really are a leader. So, turn off your smartphone when you are in a conversation – always!
