I think this is such a hard problem, particularly pushing back against the rise of things like Slack.

We've actually started a new communication platform, that tries to let you have efficient async communications. Get the same amount of information across, but in fewer messages.
One way drive towards this goal is to only deliver messages an hour after they are sent. It sounds weird but it's totally enough to break the habit of watching for a reply. If you need a reply in short order pick up the phone.
