Why is the volume of email I receive dropping?
A little more than a year ago I was promoted to my current position. At the time I received 500 emails/day. About 6 months ago it was down to 300/day. I just did another email analysis - and I am now averaging less than 100 emails per day. It feels kind of like a culture change. I seem to be sending 8-10 emails per day. My predecessor was more of an email communicator and my previous boss was a furious producer of email - but the volume didn't drop right when they left - it seems to have been a gradual shift.
Is it just because I am less of an email writer than they were?
I'm not complaining - I'm just curious. Has anyone else experienced this?
Is it possible this is a negative - perhaps people aren't telling me stuff?
It doesn't feel that way (but as a high D/C who cares how I feel).
I think the communication lines are open. I have healthy O3s. I average 6-8 meetings/day.
I turned off clutter so the emails aren't hiding from me.
