Our default way to read an email is that we’re wrong.
We’ve made a mistake and someone is pointing it out.
Even when it’s a compliment, we’re hesitant to accept it.
“What do they actually want?” “Is this because I did poorly before?” “It was nothing. Really.”
Chances are its the default setting of the person you’re sending an email to, too.
Perhaps it’s time to act and shift the way we communicate to others. It needn’t be a complete 180, but putting more time to face-to-face conversations can make all the difference.
The default way of reading a communication when it’s person-to-person might still create some concern, but ultimately it feels more authentic, helpful and like you care.
