About This Episode

Communication is a critical part of leadership. But managing email can be tedious and frustrating for busy leaders.

In this episode, Tricia and LZ will discuss their strategies for email management and reaching “inbox zero.” Leaders will get new ideas about how to manage email, how Tricia and LZ  delegate to their virtual assistants, how they  prioritize their emails, and a lot more!

1. Filter through your inbox. Identify the emails that are subscriptions and are either unimportant or distract from the urgent. Which emails have unintentional importance, which ones are good things to know and which emails need your attention? Get through the minutia and create some filtering so that you know how to attack each one of them.

2. Try setting a goal of only touching an email once. If you open an email, you should be trying to handle 90% of them right then. You’re not reading and going on to the next one. You’re taking whatever appropriate action is needed for that email at that time. 

3. What is your life if work is your hobby? Trust your systems that you’ve put in place. Trust your VA to handle your inbox. And check out during non-working hours and when you’re on PTO. Truly disconnecting and spending time not being at work, not being in an email, not thinking about all the things that are happening over there is just the best gift we can give.
