Compassionate emailing #2

Top tip:
Pick up the phone!
Disadvantages of email:

  1. the other person can't hear the tone of your voice, or where you are putting stress in the sentence.
  2. you can't hear the other person's reaction, and pause to clarify
  3. you can't check of this is a good time for communication
So if at all possible:

  •  pick up the phone and ask if this is a good time to talk.
  • Or send an email and arrange a time to talk.
