I have three questions for you: Do you get cold sweats before you hit the send key for a company-wide email? Do you struggle to find the right words to express your ideas in business reports? Do you make it to the first round of job competitions, but fail to pass the written components?

If you feel like you're drowning in email, here's a tool you can use to schedule them, have them return to your inbox, and remind yourself to follow up on messages.

I use Boomerang every day to help me manage my email. It's one of the tools I recommend to my friends and clients.

I wonder if this study was done wirh a focus on temperament, if the results would support the data on gender.

Example: Do NT & ST women have similar results to men in the gender study? Do NF & SF men have similar results to women in the gender study?

Has anyone done this research?

See http://flip.it/Gj5XN for info on temperament.
Are women "wired" to be more emotional? Not exactly -- but new research provides more evidence that the male and female brain may have very different ways of processing emotion. Previous research has shown that women generally experienc...

And...thanks Lowell Ann. Please share with your network. I've become a regular writer for the Faith Forum; a surprising convergence of all that I do -- interpersonal communications, writing, teaching, coaching, and of course, my faith. :-)

The modern era.
This financial crisis is forcing governments and business at all levels to make some tough decisions.
If things continue like this for much longer, there's a real risk that we may have to lay Fred off…

Love this video. I've used spaghetti and mashmallows in my workshops to help people create 3D models of communications concepts, but not for prototyping and team-building. I'll be showing this in future team-building workshops and planning sessions. :-)
Tom Wujec presents some surprisingly deep research into the "marshmallow problem" — a simple team-building exercise that involves dry spaghetti, one yard of tape and a marshmallow. Who can build the tallest tower with these ingredients? And why does a surprising group always beat the average?

My favourite GMail tool for scheduling and managing my email. I don't recommend very many products, but I've been using this one for over a year and it's worth the subscription fee. You can try the free version for as long as you like and upgrade if you'd like more features.

A friend asked me how I manage my Gmail. I use Boomerang to send emails later, return emails to my inbox,  & remind me to follow-up. Love the notes feature.
