But phone and in-person meetings aren’t totally obsolete for good reason: Sitting across from someone, it’s very easy to cover a multitude of issues quickly. What might take 30 emails to resolve can often be settled by the end of a five-minute conversation. Keep that in mind the next time you decide to reach out to someone.
