(From the article): I make a habit of putting my phone in my bag or a drawer when I am meeting with someone. In fact, I often won’t take the phone into the room when going to a meeting. I am the kind of person that will check my phone if it’s in front of me, which is why I remove the distraction. And if I have to take my phone into a meeting because I am waiting for something urgent, I always ensure it is on silent.

It’s tempting to do everything by email (or even faster modes like texting and instagramming, etc), but I’ve spent a good portion of my time as an executive coach helping my clients unwind the damage they’ve done in the name of expedience. And, I’ve fired a contractor or two because I got sick of being “cyber scolded” with terse emails. So let’s try to save you this trouble.

(From the article): Trustworthy people express gratitude for the people who help them. They are confident in their abilities, but they also accept the fact that they would be nothing without the support of those who made their success possible.
