Think Before You Write: 7 Ways to Make Your Emails More Professional

Despite the advent of several communications online, email still remains as one of the most popular applications on the internet. This is indeed a big reason why businesses (even smaller ones) need to find ways to improve their email communication whether for internal communication and especially for marketing.

You’ve probably heard from some other business owners that email is a great platform for marketing – it has the ability to reach out large volume of potential customers from all corners of the globe. But unfortunately, spam emails have made email marketing a bit “unreliable” on the eyes of the customers – many people nowadays are getting more cautious each time an email arrives in their inbox. This calls for extra effort and efficiency on our part since effective email communication is no longer an option, but a necessary strategy to thrive in the marketplace.

So how can your company practice effective email communication? To begin with, keep in mind that when you write an email, what you are saying is not private. If you think your mail should not be read by other people, don’t send it. Otherwise, it might ruin your relationship with the person you are sending it to.

Leadership Language: Why Your Word Choices Matter

Leadership is important in order for a company to succeed. Without a great leader, an organisation will have no direction and everyone seems to be out of control. But when you got a great leader on your team, you work like a well-oiled machine where everyone works smoothly like dancing on a perfect choreography.

However, leadership is a quality that not everyone possesses. Some say that great leaders are born, while others believe this skill can be developed through hard training and time. But regardless of the fact whether acquired or nurtured, language is important skill every leader should have.

The problem is that we see leaders who either don’t communicate; over communicate; communicate inappropriately through outbursts, anger, or blaming; or don’t communicate clearly. Effective communication through strong interpersonal communication is the most critical skill a leader can possess when working with others and it continues to be of great importance to meet the demands of employee retention and in the building of trust and confidence in an individual’s and organisation’s leadership.

When it comes to connecting with their subordinates, many leaders fail to hit the mark to a lack of interest in others ideas and opinions, out dated management styles, and the inability to work with others.
