How to Be Effective in Any Form
Business Writing is a workplace skill that can significantly enhance a person’s effectiveness and career success . . . or it can be a time-consuming, worrisome problem. Now it’s been joined by the email form, an often-breezy, easy way to get messages across quickly . . . and, too often, poorly.
Neither traditional Business Writing nor workplace email need be a problem, for the person willing to invest common sense and a little time and thought in how the process works.
This workshop breaks the writing process down into its essential steps, and shows how the individual writer can be effective at each – in less time, with less hassle and with significant improvement in results. Special attention is devoted to the specifics of email writing, especially its challenges.
Participants get a chance to try out the writing practices, and apply them to their own writing situations. You are welcome to bring along workplace writing samples for discussion during the workshop or offline with the instructor.
Topics to be covered:
Pressing Problems Clinic
Structure of the Writing Process
Business Writing in Email
Essentials of the Form
Lessons for the Business Writer
When Email . . . When Not?
