This is is good advice for writing at any level. It can be leveraged across an organization, and makes logical sense. Don't overcrowd with fillers and large words, write concisely, summarize at front and then lead in with supporting facts.


At a previous organization, in the email subject line we would insert: FYI Only - for the recipient to read, not respond; Action (and then the subject matter) - if the recipient needed to do something; Respond By (insert date) - if the sender needed a response by a certain date; or Read (and then the subject matter) - if it was an important message. It helped to sort what was most important and you instantly know what you're looking for in the email.
