Business Writing Training Program

Good writing makes a huge difference. It’s the novel we can’t put down, the poem we never forgot, and the speech that changes the way we look at the world. Good writing is the memo that gets action and the letter that says what a phone call can’t.

In business writing, the language is concrete, the point of view is clear, and the points are well expressed. Good writing is hard work, and even the best writers get discouraged. However, business writing can be learned and improved with easy methods and tools.

Many people feel that writing is a burden or something they should be able to delegate. This section will help the student identify the value of writing. It explores the different forms that are used in business communication and the techniques required for good writing.

2. The Four C’s of Business Writing

The instructor will discuss four of the C’s of writing with the student: clear, concise, complete, and correct. The student will practice each C through writing exercises. This session is divided into 4 sub categories:

  • a) Writing clearly - Isolating key messages and keywords that the recipient needs to take away

During this section, the student will explore word agreement through a brief lecture and a writing exercise.Students also learn about modifiers / describers and their importance.

The Gunning Fog Index, also called the readability index, determines the difficulty level of a written piece. The student will apply the index to a sample and to their own work.
