Terseness as an enemy of remote work

“Thx”

“OK”

“K”

Or no response at all.

We’ve all gotten these responses over the years via email, group chat, or text from coworkers or clients. Remote and hybrid work models mean it’s time for organizations to reevaluate their team communications.

Misunderstandings are made easier in remote work environments. In fact, I once read an article that remote work like we’re doing right now can even breed paranoia in some people.

 As we roll into another month of remote work, it’s time to stop and reevaluate communications within your team and organization as a whole.
