The CYA Email — Will We Ever Be Free?

The CYA Email — Will We Ever Be Free?

We are adults, right? You would think doing your job would be enough.

You would think all the hours you spend on work and meetings to deliver a project would be enough.

You would think the verbal status report you give in your weekly meetings would be enough.

Sadly, in our “if it isn’t in writing it didn’t happen” culture, often that just doesn’t cut it.

Will we ever see a time when we no longer need the infamous CYA (Cover Your Ass) email?
