Harvard Business Review Chronicles Importance of Face Time

In today’s fast-paced, digital world, one tried and true method still reigns supreme when it comes to the effectiveness of communications, according to Harvard Business Review. A study concluded the success rate of just six personal, face-to-face requests equals 200 emails

People tend to overestimate the power of their persuasiveness via text-based communication and underestimate the power of their persuasiveness via face-to-face communication,” concluded the study published in a recent scientific journal covered by HBR. “Face-to-face requests were 34 times more effective than email.” 

The importance of face-to-face meetings is something successful businesses have long known despite the emergence of video conferencing. So, it comes as no surprise that more than half of all business-related private aviation missions carry mid-level employees from small businesses. They know that is the way to best serve their customers and close a new deal. 

This is driving up the interest in business- related private aviation because it is a way to get the job done in an increasingly fast business cycle that doesn’t have time for the increasing lost productivity to airline delays and cancellations.

Face to face meetings are crucial to the success of any business. Let Private Jet Services be your trusted aviation consultant by contacting a representative today.
