Technology Has Made Us Cowards

by - m on 07/23/2015

We’ve all heard stories of folks being laid off via email.

This doesn’t occur out of ignorance.

Technology has made us cowards.

In case it’s not obvious –

  • Bad news should always be delivered in person.
  • Information that requires a detailed explanation should always be delivered in person.
  • If you get the feeling as you type your message – or as you leave a voice mail – that the message would be better delivered in person, then it should always be delivered in person.

You cannot claim to be a leader if you hide behind technology when things get difficult.
