No emails, please!
Despite all the research, coaching, training and advice saying we should not be slaves to our Inbox. Telling us to use email only for private, personal and asynchronous communication only, nothing much seems to change.
Maybe this will make you reconsider using email for just about everything.
We tend to write emails that are …
- not creative
- not leading to any kind of productive discussion
- providing way too much (useless) information rather than getting to the point briefly
- open to misinterpretation
- saying things we would not dare say to someone’s face
Still not convinced email is no good for collaboration? Then watch Tripp & Tyler.
