Collaboration in the workplace is more than just sending a few emails to your colleague or quickly chatting an instant message. It’s about sharing documents and being able to discuss them at the same time while in different locations.

Most of us try to portray the most professional versions of ourselves at work, but there are times when etiquette seems nowhere to be found. Conference calls tend to be a breeding ground for some scary employee habits, especially as more workers dial in outside of the physical office.
In honor of this season, we present a few of the different conference call “characters” you might run into this Halloween, and some recommendations for how meeting leaders can manage them during their next call.
