I just have to share this with my friends and fellow communicators.
If you use Microsoft Outlook, then you know you can customize the background of your e-mails. Well, some people use this option and some don’t, right?
So, today the business president sent out a welcome back message to his leadership. Apparently he uses this option. No skin off my back.
After this e-mail went out, I actually received a message from a member of his original audience with the message, “His background on this e-mail is distracting. Is that the new standard?”
I just had to laugh out loud. With all that is going on at any place of business, in the world, etc., this is an issue? This is what I’m supposed to focus on as a communicator?
Oh – I just cannot wait to see what else 2010 has in store for me! 🙂
