Send Your Own E-mail

Add a personal touch to your important messages, send them out yourself.  E-mails distributed by an administrative assistant on behalf of the leader always seem to less personal and even less important than if sent out directly by the leader.  Assistants are great for helping to format, proof and make sure the e-mail gets the message across, take the extra moment and send the e-mail yourself.

Try to use a title that will convey the essence of the communication.

If you can communicate your message in a paragraph or two, place it in the body of the e-mail rather than as an attachment. If you must use an attachment, use text in the body of the e-mail to entice the reader to open the attachment.  Better yet, summarize the attachment in the e-mail and use the attachment for a more indepth discussion.

    Great thoughts! Sent to “personally; and signed off “personally” it makes all the difference in the world. That personal touch in “high-level” communication is a perfect way to get the reaction that you desire – whatever that reaction is; the phone ringing, a smile on the face, volunteers or patients!
