How often are you in a meeting and hear someone say, "Can you repeat that?"
Well, if they were present, no repetition would be necessary. Multitasking in a meeting is not respecting everyone else's time. The team will get more out of the time if people are focused. The email or chat can wait.
If only a few people consistently act this way, don't blame the schedule. The issue most likely lies in their discipline. However, if you see multiple people not paying attention, a review of the meetings and their purpose is probably due. They most likely feel it's the only way to get everything done.
