Put the smartphone down and come out with your hands up!

A few months ago, I finally got a smartphone. It is wonderful: phone calls, e-mails, texts, my calendar, maps and everything else under the sun. It lets me connect to everything with just few taps of the screen – except the person I’m having a face-to-face conversation with.

You may have experienced this frustration. You’re in a meeting, making your big, important point that’s going to forever change how your company does business, and half the room is scrolling on their phones. Or how about a meeting with a new vendor who says he wants your business but his pocket is buzzing with new messages throughout the conversation.
