How Email is Strangling Your Business
Consumed by constant, nagging emails? Here's a simple solution to winning your time back.
Jerry Hopkins, founder of The Leadership Team, says “There is a natural curiosity whether in our home or professional life to want to check who has been in touch and what they have had to say. But the reality is that very few people in business need to look at their emails more than two or three times a day."
Employees should be trained to follow these simple guidelines like checking email only a few times a day. Have them turn off any pop up notifications on their desktop or mobile devices. Train them to read each email once and act upon it. This can be done by replying and filing it or setting a specific date for follow up.
