How to deal with people when they attend calls in the middle of a meeting with you?
If you get irritated the way I do when someone attends a call or start using his/her mobile during the conversation(happens often during interviews),
Then do not just sit and wait for the other person’s call to end. Bring out your diary and start writing. If you have nothing to write, just write that “I am in conversation with XYZ, who is not valuing my time and using mobile.”
Repeat. When you bring out a diary and start writing, others observe it and gets curious. Calls end fast. With this method, you show the value of your time to another person. I bet further calls are avoided.
It also reminds you to not to use your mobile during a conversation. Try out this method and you will be surprised by the results.
