Approrpriate Use of Communication Mediums at Work
Information Greatly Appreciated
I have created a chart on the appropriate use of communication mediums in the workplace for my next book Workplace Savvy. Need to validate the information I have already collected.
What work situations are appropriate for the use of the following mediums? What do you think?
- Text messages
- Ad-Hoc Meetings (face-to face)
- Formal Meeting
One Finding: Many of the Baby Boomers I have talked with see no appropriate use for texting at work. However a few have been identified.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated Will share findings.
Thanking you in advance
These are all just various tools that all have a practical use under the right circumstance. Just as you wouldn’t use a screwdriver to pound a nail, a text message would not always be appropriate in every situation. That being said, there are lots of circumstances where there would be no issues with texts. I have sent texts to other people in meetings to convey a critical piece of information about a current discussion topic, or to guide them away from a potential pitfall.
