Pros and conference calls
I’ve been taking part in these big nation-spanning conference calls once a month for the last few months, and I confess that conference call etiquette has, so far, eluded me. The leader of the call asks questions or asks for questions and I don’t know how people keep from all talking at the same time. I kind of wait for a moment of quiet, then as I’m about to talk, someone else chimes in. It’s frustrating. — Plus, there’s the thing where some people are really far from the mic and others are too close. Erk.
