We spend hours every week organizing our inboxes, responding to emails, sending emails, and sometimes, it can seem like your inbox is taking over your entire workday. This week on "I Want to Like You," host and Real Simple editor Kristin van Ogtrop speaks with Ravi Gajendran, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign's College of Business and Patricia Rossi, business etiquette expert and author of Everyday Etiquette to discuss email mistakes, best practices, and must-know etiquette advice.
There are many email mistakes you can run into at work: that person who sends extremely long messages, that one who prefers endless back-and-forth emails over a quick phone call, or maybe the worst—that co-worker who always replies-all. In this episode, you'll learn how to handle every mistake or annoyance, and hopefully prevent email from ruling your life.
