Email Less - Talk More!
Email Less / Talk More: Improving Productivity and Job Satisfaction for You & Others is the first book to provide solutions to problems created by workplace email overuse. Instead of treating the "symptoms" of reduced productivity and information overload with email management techniques and email etiquette, this book addresses the actual root causes.
Email is a great communication tool for many cases -- but not for all cases. Email Less / Talk More teaches people to choose the most effective communication means -- email, voicemail, a meeting, or direct conversation -- based on the situation. It challenges readers to consider alternate communication means before hitting COMPOSE or REPLY. It also provides solutions to many other productivity and work/life balance problems triggered by email and PDAs becoming the new preferred communication tools.
Using an easy-to-read story format set in office, home, and family vacation settings, the book shows how improper workplace communication – especially email – can adversely impact productivity, relationships, and personal lives. It provides many examples where email appears to be the most efficient communication tool but is actually much less productive for both the sender and recipients. The lessons from the book are summarized in easy-to-use rules that provide the Do’s & Don’ts of effective communication.
