These days, there seem to be unwritten rules for everything in the workplace. This certainly applies to conference calls! Below are the unofficial rules you should follow during your next conference call.
Schedule Call For The Right Amount Of Time
One main complaint people have about conference calls is that they waste time. However, this will not be the case if you schedule the call for just the right amount of time. There is no need to schedule a 30-minute call for an hour!
Mute Your Line
If you are not hosting the call, you should mute your line. That way, the other participants of the call will not be able to hear any background noise you are exposed to. You can unmute your line at the end of the call if there is a Q&A section.
Do Not Multitask
During a traditional conference call, the participants of the call will not be able to see what you are doing. That is not an invitation to do other work throughout the call. If you end up asking a question that was clearly covered in the presentation, it will be blatantly obvious that you were not paying attention.
