Training Overview

What you need to know to write right. Improve your writing to advance your career.

As layoffs sweep across American businesses, it’s an ideal time to consider how improved writing skills can impress your manager and make you immune from termination.  New writing techniques will enable you to get ahead of the competition and advance your career. 

Good leaders walk the talk, but they also “write right.” They know how to say in a few words what needs to be said in crisp, clear language. The road to bad communication is paved with good intentions but poor construction. Readers know when subjects and verbs don’t agree, punctuation misses the point, words don’t fit, and content is confusing.

You can use a few basic grammar, punctuation, and usage rules to improve business communications with clear and succinct content.
