Jef LippiattOwner at Startup Chucktown
Very solid advice. Also, please refrain from assigning "High Priority" to every single email (it negates the importance if over used). Ensure you are only "Replying All" when absolutely necessary, otherwise only "Reply" to the necessary recipient or recipients, others will appreciate you not flooding their inbox. Only add "read receipts" when sending Important Timely documents, no one wants to feel like you are hand-holding or babysitting them to ensure they've read your message.

This is a great article. It is true that many people lose their focus. I would say this is important not just for the business owner and/or the executive team, but for every person within the company (management and lead roles specifically). If there is not a clear focus from the top down, you can't expect each team member to have a laser focus either.

I think when it comes to 'story-selling', there is no point simply skimming over the details - it's just too important. Engaging stories should always open up a two-way communication stream; this way, you know you have been truly successful in your storytelling.
