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.
