Email Correspondence


EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR EXTENSIVE BUSINESS/PERSONAL SITUATIONS! 

"We prefer email correspondence." 
"Email correspondence is so much easier for us." 
"We'll respond faster via e-mail, then phone." 
"That's the way we do business!" 

EXTENSIVE e-mail correspondence should raise a “red flag.” If a business relies heavily on e-mail correspondence, BEWARE of them. You can accomplish so much more via a phone call -- PLAIN and SIMPLE! Extensive email correspondence IS NOT FUN AND MUCH IS LOST THROUGH IT.

And if you still haven't gotten the importance of this, think about how you'd feel if you needed to talk to an M.D. or an insurance company immediately, and the only way you could communicate was via an e-mail because "that's how we do it here."

"Like Breathing"

Your communication skills can be "like breathing" once you are aware and have a map; but it takes work and a commitment. People who strive to be their best, don't come out of a box. It's a process and it takes time. Are you stuck and need a map? Seek a "communication" mentor. Observe how they do it!
