Executive Business Writing Coaching

As soon as you take one step up the corporate ladder, your success depends on one basic skill: your ability to communicate effectively.
     - Peter Drucker
 

An executive writing coach helps you maximize your particular writing strengths, identify areas of opportunity for greater impact, and become more effective in your work. Executive business writing coaching is an intensive, individualized, guided engagement that leads to business writing mastery. It is best suited for professionals who are ready to focus on business writing and for whom writing is an essential part of their work. 

Your knowledge, tone, confidence, language, and clarity is conveyed in your writing to your entire organization and clients. The focus of coaching is identification and correction of your particular writing issues, and ensuring your documents drive business objectives.

PROCESS: The program is very individualized and effective. Essentially, we identify goals, review current writing, and develop a plan to work through appropriate skill gains progressively. Every engagement reaches goals following an individualized path based on your work requirements. Sessions are conducted live, via WebEx.

OUTCOMES: Executives learn to shape all written communication specifically to business objectives, write correctly, with engaging style. Business writing will effectively elicit your specific business objectives.
