“Email can be frustrating” Thanx to Tripp and Tyler it can also be incredibly entertaining. In particular if you take a few steps back and are ready to touch your own nose when it comes to a few unnecessary and annoying habits. But how to fight bad habits in emailing or in life in general?
Watch closely how these two guys can help you! First there is a gathering of real life situations – only here they translate what goes on electronically and visible only on your computer screens into an office environment where people interact with each other face to face in the same way they do via email. That’s the funny part!
In a second step you might become aware of all the little things that can make this media cumbersome and at times unhelpful. Raising awareness really is the most important step to remedy. If you are able to develop insight into what is going on in your company’s and your own email communication, then you can use this knowledge to analyze your situation from a distance.
Look! What you see are snippets of behavior. Change some of it and you might be able to feel differently about sending and receiving email. You can start by making small differences and to create good habits. There are many ways to overcome bad habits. You can – for example – call someone briefly and just tell her/him about your opinion – thereby omitting to send an email reply to the whole DL and reduce redundant email information easily.
