No matter what industry you’re in or what your role is, we’re all still trying to make sense of our next business moves as we work to minimize the impact of the current crisis. One thing is clear: emotional intelligence (EQ) is critical when working with customers, partners, prospects and colleagues during these very difficult times. When it comes to email, your messaging must be on point – or you’ll risk alienating those stakeholders who are most important to you and your business.
My advice, now and always, is to put people first. When you lead with empathy, your communications will unfailingly move forward on the right course. To drill down deeper on that thought, take a look at my recent Forbes article, which offers five principles for emails that hit the mark right now.
