I am a people person. I know that my strength is in motivating people not only through my words but through my actions. That is why I find it difficult to manage in the digital era, So many people working remotely, so many IM’s, texts, emails, conference calls, etc. I am certain that I am not alone.
In this digital era that we find ourselves in, it is hard to connect with people in the same way we once could. So, in an attempt to help transmit my personality in a modern and may I say innovative way, I have created my own emoticons. These are intended to help lighten the mood, show a bit of my human side, and still get the message across. So far, they seem to be getting a very positive response from my co-workers and peers. Admittedly, I have not tried them with my boss yet. I will let you know how that goes.
