“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is a pretty common saying, especially beloved by parents and teachers. But “Don’t judge your colleagues by their email habits” isn’t a common saying because it would be impossible to do. We DO judge our colleagues by their email habits. These days, we begin most work relationships via email and we sustain them that way. And each email you write can deepen your work relationships or put them on life support.
In this webinar, you'll learn the five email bad habits that cause people to think less of you, delay answering your email, or resist doing what you’ve asked. You'll also learn how to write email that will make people like you, even if they've never met you in person.
