Email Isn't Dead, But You're Probably Not Using It Right

The first thing most of us learned to do online was send an email. Nowadays, it takes up over a third of the working day, with over 2.7 billion emails being fired off each second. Now approaching its 50th birthday, email has proved to become surprisingly resilient. How long is this likely to continue? With rumours swirling that “email is dead”, we check the facts and uncover the truth.

Feature Friday: Inside Wundamail’s Behavioural Change Mindset

Here at Wundamail, we believe that in order to create meaningful, lasting good habits, you must begin and end with a positive working mindset. Unfortunately, not everyone is automatically in a positive working mindset, 100% of the time. It might be that a project isn’t quite going to plan, you’re not sure about the direction of the strategy, or that the new guy in the team is definitely not your cup of tea. Whatever it is, it puts a damper on your day and on your productivity. We all have bad days, but with Wundamail, you can drive behavioural change within your department and reap the productive benefits of an engaged and satisfied team who are definitely on your wavelength.

Feature Friday: How Wundamail Promotes Good Habits Within Teams

Aristotle said it first. Reflecting on the immense power of repetition, the Ancient Greek philosopher famously propounded the idea that “excellence is a habit” rather than an act. Though civilisation has changed beyond recognition since 384 BC, Aristotle’s original argument is perhaps more relevant now than ever before. When it comes to leading a successful team, motivation can only get you so far. Habits, on the other hand, are what deliver momentum.

What Steps Are Important When Giving Feedback To An Employee

We all have to give and take on board feedback at some point in our working lives, but managers tend to dish out the criticism and praise a bit more than everyone else. When giving out feedback however, it can often be off the cuff or in the moment. For positive feedback, it can come across as too nonchalant and casual and for negative feedback, it can seem overly reactionary. So, with this in mind, how can you as a manager, offer structured, cohesive and, most importantly, constructive feedback to your employees that they’ll be able to run with going forward?
