Final Words Of Wisdom

you know what I love about emails. You can send as many of them as you possibly want. There's no rules. You don't have to ask permission. You could send any time of day. You can send as many e mails as you want. I love that about emails. Now the only thing to remember is make sure you're writing good emails, and we've talked a lot about different ways of what's a good email with a bad email. But if you cut through all the noise, all you need to remember is used bullet points. That's it. Use bullet points. Everything in your life will be easier once you start using bullet points. Okay, that's all I want to say about email.

Class Description

Despite the surge in popularity of messaging tools like Slack, HipChat, and Basecamp, email remains the single most important means of communication in corporate America. And yet, people love to bash email, most likely because they’re simply not good at writing them.

Being able to write an effective email is a critical skill for anyone wanting to be successful at their job. Best-selling author, podcaster, and corporate executive Justin Kerr breaks down the do’s and don'ts of email writing (e.g., never say “EOD” and always “Reply All”) and how good emails with bullet points hold the secret to an optimal work/life balance.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Win an email fight.
  • Get replies to your emails.
  • Set effective deadlines.
  • Design a high-quality email.
  • Avoid using attachments.
