Effective Email and Verses Voicemail
Time management consultant Stephen Young claims that the average time consumed by an unplanned telephone call is 12 minutes, verses 7 minutes for a planned call. This represents five-minute savings every time you jot down some notes before dialing a number.
My average client receives about 45 emails and 15 voicemails a day. But the effectiveness of our usage determines the efficiency with our time management. Here's some tips to help increase your personal performance and that of your team:
When sending messages
Be specific in your first sentence. For email, the first sentence should answer the 'who, what, why, where and when' for the recipient. With voicemail, using a list helps prevent phone tag, so write down your key points before picking up the phone. In both cases include timelines or deadlines. For example, 'I need you to review and approve the attached budget by 4PM Friday'.
Be selective about distribution. When it comes to emails, try to copy only those individuals directly affected by the content. Copying or forwarding information indiscriminately wastes the recipient's time as well as your own.
When retrieving messages
Filter by person. If you are consistently copied or blind copied on emails, they will probably have a lower priority than ones written specifically to you. Save them in a digital Folder labeled 'cc/bc' and read them at a later time. If they consistently fail to provide information you need, contact the sender and request removal of your name from the distribution list.
These are just a few tips, but the single most important thing to remember is to develop an email and voicemail strategy, share it with the team and encourage everyone to stick to use!
