 Execute Without Drama

CSC’s Exec. Team recently attended a speaking engagement featuring Patrick Thean, an award winning serial entrepreneur and author. Thean has started and exited multiple startups including MindBlazer and Metasys. Some of his other achievements are receiving the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for North Carolina in 1996 and accomplishing the ranking of 151 on the Inc 500 in 1997.

Thean’s book, Execute Without Drama, helps companies to increase speed and efficiency while decreasing drama through Thean’s execution framework. Although it is a short read, it’s filled with valuable lessons explaining why ‘what gets measured, gets done’.

Execute Without Drama will help you learn to:

*Identify the RIGHT THINGS to measure
*Figure out the SUCCESS CRITERIA
*COMMUNICATE effectively with your team

 10 Emails You Should Never Send

We often treat email communication in the same casual manner as we do informal telephone conversations, and it’s all too easy to forget that there’s a flawless digital record of what’s been communicated.

Unlike verbal conversations, emails can be forwarded to the wrong people. Likewise, if a message is written in a hurry, it can end up sloppy or leave itself open to misinterpretation and, as a result, it can have nasty repercussions. It’s always better to think before you send.

Convenient email enabled devices such as Treos and Blackberries also allow you to send emails from anywhere these days too, but it’s important to train yourself to send in “work mode”. Next time you reach for your iPhone, remember that you’re representing yourself and your company, no matter where you are.

10 email mistakes that could cost embarassment or worse:


1. Emails sent after happy hour
Company happy hour after work?  It’s probably best to save the iPAQ responses for the next day and not to respond to emails from home after a night out.
2. Sarcasm and dry humor
Email is not a good medium to convey the intricacies of sarcasm, and often it can be taken out of context – with disastrous repercussions.
3. Private matters

Always better to separate business and pleasure – and using company resources for personal matters is generally a bad idea.
4. Professional criticisms
If it’s a small thing, say it over the phone; otherwise it looks too official and can cause unnecessary worry. If it’s really bad, discuss it in person.
5. Personal remarks and gossip
It’s very easy to treat email like water cooler conversation, but these emails can have a tendency to get ‘Forwarded’.
6. Angry responses
It’s easy to fire off an angry response without thinking, but not always easy to retract it. Best to put a delay on your email if possible, or wait a day before you respond if you’re really that upset.
7. Bad language
Most people just don’t do it, but for the few who do – it’s a terrible idea; swearing has no place in work emails.
8. Company or industry secrets
This one may well get you sued as well as sacked.  Most companies have a confidentiality agreement you sign at the beginning of your employment that would be violated in this case.
9. Racist/sexist language
It’s best to avoid this in your everyday speech, as well as your work emails.  Like the above, most people sign a zero-tolerance agreement which would be violated and such violations are grounds for termination.
10. Sloppy writing

Even if it’s sent from your iPAQ while you’re at the beach, remember that your image is on the line.

Last but not least, if you work in government or other offices of interest to the general public, be extra cautious.
