Break Down the Task: WRITING REGIMEN
(Prepare, Compose, Repair)

Executives rate the ability to write as one of the top characteristics of promotable employees. Yet otherwise highly-skilled workers report that writing effectively and efficiently often eludes them. This session presents a process of breaking down your writing task into three phases: preparing, composing, repairing. Following these simple guidelines will not only result in improved final documents, but will ease your writing experience.

  • How to make a positive impression
  • How to organize your thoughts into writing
  • How to edit and proofread

(Individual, Coaching, Edits)

This is an optional, customized, and highly recommended opportunity to expand on what you've gleaned from previous sessions. Or you can take advantage of this one-on-one coaching by itself. You'll submit one or two samples of your writing, then we'll review it individually in a specially scheduled time. Your current writing samples will be relevant and instructional in revealing patterns and refining challenging areas.

Why You Will Benefit

  • One-on-one time
  • Customized sessions
  • Focus on your own writing
  • Identify patterns and problems
  • Edit and refine documents with a coach
