Despite the surge in popularity of messaging tools like Slack, HipChat, and Basecamp, email remains the single most important means of communication in corporate America. And yet, people love to bash email, most likely because they’re simply not good at writing them.

Being able to write an effective email is a critical skill for anyone wanting to be successful at their job. Best-selling author, podcaster, and corporate executive Justin Kerr breaks down the do’s and don'ts of email writing (e.g., never say “EOD” and always “Reply All”) and how good emails with bullet points hold the secret to an optimal work/life balance.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Win an email fight.
  • Get replies to your emails.
  • Set effective deadlines.
  • Design a high-quality email.
