Conference Calls: Call in, Tune out

 Conference Calls:

CALL IN, TUNE OUT
The New York Times reports that conference calls have become an “orgy of multitasking”. Here’s one example the paper cites:

“Dr. Halamka…uses his time on conference calls to sand and varnish the furniture, walk his dogs, get a haircut or tend to his llamas.”

The solution? Use videoconferencing for a higher level of accountability. (But then there’s the risk seeing your colleagues in their pajamas, brushing their teeth or playing with their cats!)
