E-Mail is a great tool for efficient communication. However, it is just that - an efficient tool. It is not something to build relationships with - so don’t rely on it exclusively. Set a goal to talk to people at least once for every ten E-Mail exchanges. Relationships are best built in-person, second by phone calls, and third by the written word. Take full advantage of the first two if you want the relationship to grow.
