In today’s fast-paced world, it is important to ensure that we are laser focused on skillsets that make a difference.

We all know messages, emails & chats take up an inordinate amount of time & many struggle with controlling them. Instead of being a chore you can laser focus on important skillsets within messaging to enhance your performance.

As our No. 1 time consumer, what we do with messaging is as important as any other activity we conduct in our daily operations.

For many organisations, providing an efficient environment where leaders & employees can perform is their highest priority. This means that messaging, emails & chats must be high on their priority list!

Research shows that individuals spend as much as 30% of their working time on messages (sometimes more) which in sheer $ terms is 30% of the salary costs.

Let’s face it – that’s a huge investment or cost in messaging – whichever way you want to look at it.

Leaders have to ask themselves the question!

Am I using messages efficiently?

Am I wasting excessive time messaging, chatting & on emails?

Can I do messaging much more efficiently?

Can I influence the team to message more efficiently?
