While speaking with a visitor during an appointment, you should bear in mind that listening is as essential as talking. Nothing is more irritating and insulting to a visitor to have an appointment interrupted by continual phone calls. You need instruct your assistant to hold all calls except emergencies until the end of your appointment. If your phone system includes a "message taking" feature, be sure to make use them. If the caller is veering too far away from the subject, you might say: "Since I have another appointment in a few minutes, I'd like to discuss our primary concern."
