Put Your Words to Work
For those who must write as part of their job, being able to write well can play a crucial role when dealing with both internal and external stakeholders across every level. Learning how to capture thoughts on paper so they are strong and persuasive, but at the same time clear, concise, complete and correct is a skill that must be acquired and then reinforced through practice. Due to its workbook based coaching, writing in this workshop is viewed as a process rather than a collection of factual and procedural knowledge.
