We’re all busy at work tapping away on our keyboards and clicking away at all the links we come across jumping from one hyperlink to another like monkeys from one tree to another… (no wonder we’re imagined as their descendants).
The next time you receive a broadcast corporate email announcement in your job from your CEO or any other top executive, start reading it from the bottom, from the very last paragraph.
Every email from a leader (especially the emails that are titled ‘From the desk of ….”) follows the CMC components embedded in an email to cater to the mass audience’s perception –
- It provides Context first,
- then it delivers the core Message, and
- finally Concludes the action item or showers gratitude for someone, or something, or anticipates a future event.
It thus saves you time in understanding the intent of the email as they either summarize OR give thanks for a certain action or an event in the last paragraph(s).
You can always read the complete email if you have time in your hands but for busy Homo Sapiens like us, this technique will save time and we can then successfully jump to another tree err… hyperlink.
Cheers and good luck!
