I know I’ve sent an email that was misunderstood.
Avoid Misunderstandings By Avoiding Electronic Messages
If your message has any emotion or room for misinterpretation you should use one of the following methods:
- Pick up the phone.
- Send a video (we use loom, it’s awesome, and free! https://www.loom.com/)
- Talk in person
Choosing one of these methods will communicate the tone and warm feelings you want the other person to hear!
One More Rule
Never EVER EVER send an email if you are angry! Take some time to get a grip (use your emotional intelligence) and then have a real conversation, using one of these methods.
Trust me. This will improve and in some cases save your relationships.
