In this world of technology, it is a lot easier to send emails and texts instead of having face to face interactions with their bosses and subordinates. However, there are many times with people have been calling for face to face contact when the issue can be solved with a simple email.
- A meeting to read documents to a group.
- A get together because the meeting organizer didn’t do their own homework, so they want the team to do it for them.
- A conference call with so many people that no one bothers to say anything to the audience.
“Don’t call a meeting when an email will do the job better. Before you send out that next meeting invite, ask yourself if the topic would be better handled by another medium.”
