    Depending on the group’s flow, I would either do nothing at the moment itself but recall the situation during the final reflections, or ask the person/team directly what he/they think the impact of this act can be on the group’s current focus.

    Pause the meeting. Ask what made them check their phones? Ask the members the group agreement on gadgets and electronics. The situation will be an intervention. I will ask, how this event manifest in their work environment? How is it affecting their and their teams effectiveness or efficiency? What can be possible ways to prevent or minimize similar incidents?

    On the next meeting, I would remind members of the agreement on devices and technology.
