TEN C'S FOR WRITING EFFECTIVELY
• Identify the communication problems with the email.
Email is an extremely popular form of communication in both the business and personal communication landscapes, but it can often lead to major problems if the underlying tone of the email message is misinterpreted at one end (Marc & Angel, 2007). The intent of the email is not completely clear with regards to the pertinent details omitted from the email. The salutation is addressed to the sender and the date of the email is not included. Furthermore, the receiver is left to determine the actual date the event will occur, and the address of the Café. A contribution has been requested; however, the level of donation it is not determined, and the timeline to respond is also unknown. It’s important to spell check the document to capture the misuse of the words, but it is often not enough. In addition, the word “honor” applied in the first paragraph of the email was used out of context. The objective to rereading the email from the perspective of the receiver is to ensure each word is understandable. In closing, Bobby does not include a contact phone number to correspond any responses, questions or concerns (Stuart, Sarow, Stuart, 2007).
