Executive and Professional Development
Business Writing Skills
For the first time in history, writing has become the most common form of communication in the workplace. Unfortunately, the growing volume of written communication has resulted in an increased error rate, the need to prepare multiple pieces of writing when one would suffice, and readers who are offended and frustrated by the tone of the writing. This class will help participants understand the keys to successful written communication and put those skills to the test. The principles on which effective written communication are built will be explored along with the four elements of effective organization and how to ensure an appropriate tone.
Participants will receive a copy of The Language of Success by Tom Sant.
