Sharing and Reaching Out
Posted By Lawrence Cunningham On January 2, 2013 @ 12:17 pm In Uncategorized | 4 Comments
In the hunt for elegant communications-speak in our email era, once upon a time it was nice to hear that someone wanted to share something with me and that a colleague from whom I had not heard in a long time wanted to reach out to me. Overuse, however, now bedevils these nice touches. Here is an example adapted from recent exchanges:
Assistant to Me: I wanted to share with you that the publisher has shared with me its desire to share with media contacts some advance copies of the manuscript.
Me: Thanks. Please tell them that’s fine.
Assistant: Great. I will reach out to the publisher and ask them to reach out to the media contacts.
