Technology & Communication

Written by Robert F. Abbott

A study a couple of years ago found that 63% of executives were making fewer business trips because of technology.

Instead of a plane trip, face-to-face meetings and a plane trip back, they used email, videoconferencing, or online meetings, according torepparttar Accountemps study.

If you're a manager who's spending less time with a suitcase and more with a mouse, you'll want to pay attention torepparttar 143912 nature ofrepparttar 143913 media we use, and especially when sending important messages.

A few years ago we heard a lot about etiquette in electronic messaging (netiquette) onrepparttar 143914 Internet, about needing to be conscious of how messages might be misconstrued by receivers. One ofrepparttar 143915 ideas to come out of that effort was emoticons, little text symbols that aimed to make up forrepparttar 143916 loss of facial expressions and body language.

Emoticons and netiquette have pretty much disappeared, butrepparttar 143917 world of electronic communication still can be a dangerous place.

And especially dangerous ifrepparttar 143918 stakes are high, as they're likely to be when managers communicate this way. So, let's further explore some issues that arise when we communicate electronically, rather than face-to-face.

In my limited experience with videoconferencing, for example, I found I had to work harder just catchrepparttar 143919 words, which reducedrepparttar 143920 amount facial expression information I took in. And, ifrepparttar 143921 camera adjusted to take in more facial expressions, then some body language was lost.

Think, too, aboutrepparttar 143922 differences in messages sent by email versus those sent as conventional printed letters. Email certainly leads to faster responses and greater efficiency. However, when sending a printed letter we proofread it both onrepparttar 143923 screen and in print. And,repparttar 143924 time between our initial thoughts and sendingrepparttar 143925 letter is longer. That provides time for second thoughts, sober or otherwise, thoughts that might be wiser or better expressed.
