Do You Over-(e)Communicate? Use this Chart to Find Out.

Despite popular belief, over-communication is possible. The key to quality communication is being direct, precise, effective, and strategic. Communicating just-enough and just-right is ideal. That’s the struggle.

According to The Pragmatics of Human Communication published in 1967, one of the key axioms of communication is, “we cannot not communicate.” We communicate all the time. Everything we do sends a message.

So, maybe we can be more mindful of the frequency at which we use channels to manage all of that communicating we’re doing all the time. Next time you’re composing an email, make sure it passes this infographic’s guidelines. Otherwise, you may be labeled the one in the office who sends useless emails. 😉
