My online survey about the role of email and leadership effectiveness continues to enroll respondents, and will remain open until we have 1,000 responses.
With heartfelt thanks to the 124 professionals who've taken it already, I thought just a quick sneak peak at a few of the preliminary findings might spark interest for others to take the 8-minute survey:
Sneak peak at just a few of the preliminary findings:
- About half the respondents so far selected between 30% and 60% of the email they receive at their work address(es) as "important to doing [their] job well."
- The top two things that would make "workplace email a more effective tool" so far, at almost neck and neck, are: 1) cut down on cc:ing people unnecessarily, and 2) more succinct email content.
- Interestingly, 13% of respondents so far feel they communicate better on email than they do face to face.
- Around half the respondents so far say they spend, on average, about a third of their working time reading, writing, and responding to email!
There are 22 questions, and quite a bit more to discover on many fronts, but this is just a taste, hoping to inspire continued participation.
