Same as with the salu­ta­tion. The way a writ­ten cor­re­spon­dence is signed off can be­come so rote as to have peo­ple not even see it. Even within pro­to­col, here’s an­other op­por­tu­nity to con­nect in a thought­ful va­ri­ety: “Have a great rest of your day”, “Kindly”, “Cheers”, etc.

What if you make “new email pro­to­col” a cam­paign? Have peo­ple sub­mit their top three “Salu­ta­tions and Sig-outs” for in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal emails. An­nounce all the en­tries. Then an­nounce and re­ward win­ners. In­tro­duce some fun and en­gage­ment.

You can align your writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tions to re­flect your pro­fes­sional cor­po­rate brand. Be­com­ing a more de­lib­er­ate com­mu­ni­ca­tor means learn­ing to tai­lor your com­mu­ni­ca­tions style to the ap­pro­pri­ate au­di­ence and plat­form.

Now, go out and en­joy the rest of your Sun­day!!

Com­mu­ni­ca­tions con­cerns hit the top of most em­ployee sur­veys. Tell me yours and let’s see if we can find so­lu­tions to­gether. Email me — with or with­out emo­jis — in care of Sun­day­busi­ness@in­de­pen­dent.ie
