I received an email this morning from a gentleman who said he was his team's executive leader. He goes on to explain his role as leader and exactly what it is his program does. But the more he wrote the worst his grammar became making it had to understand exactly what he was saying. He continued using wrong genders, wrong verbs and adjectives, and misspelling words to the point you just could not even begin to guess what the word was he misspelled. Now I have had several people tell me that correct grammar is not always a problem and using a wrong spelled word here or there can help generate more traffic. Maybe so, but if you start out telling me you are the top of the totem pole, all things come directly through you, and if you are the chief builder for your groups, then I feel like you must do a better job when sharing your program because you have an elevated position as leader. And as the leader I feel like you should do to the best of your ability to share the biz concepts in a way it helps and not hurts.
If he uses a spell checker the typos and just misspelled words will be corrected. Your ideas and how you can help others will be clear. And by you taking the time to make sure the majority of your message stands and echos your position as leader. Really, after reading his post, I just couldn't join his program because of how he expressed himself. What do you think? Am I being too hard or over critical?
Is grammar as important to sharing the message in a clear way that doesn't require a translator from the bad grammar?
Or do you feel it is important at all?
I really want to hear your views.
My mother was an English teacher, so I was taught from my early childhood till today that grammar is important as a key to your message.
