According to Julie Sweet, the CEO of Accenture's North America - a $16 billion business that supervises over 50,000 workers - your email writing skills could potentially harm your career. Sweet, who is knowledgeable about essential skills in the business world, believes that investing in excellent communication skills, both face-to-face and in writing (such as using email), is the best investment for a professional.

She emphasizes that people often underestimate the significance of investing in communication skills, which is key to career advancement. Bosses can easily discern whether or not their employees communicate well. Sweet points out that employees who write succinct and to-the-point emails are valued, whereas those who don't may lose out on career prospects. She also notes that she practices every year to improve her communication skills.
