Sometimes sending a quick an email makes sense: you need to acknowledge receipt of something or try to work out logistics for a meeting. And it’s so easy to type a couple of lines and move on.

But there are times when it’s better to pick up the phone or handle things face to face.

(And don’t we all know how the lack of tone in email can get people’s hackles up, even when you didn’t intend your message to read that way.)

How do you decide when it’s best to email and when you should actually talk to someone? Brandon Smith has the answer on this week’s Working on GPB Radio.
