Effective written communication is an important component of quality management. When managers write clear emails and work instructions, not only are employees more likely to produce the results that managers expect, but it can also improve employee relations because clear managerial communication promotes a collaborative atmosphere.
Additionally, the ability to structure and present emails, reports, proposals and other communication pieces in a professional manner significantly enhances the credibility of the author and the team or organization.
The intensive 1 day workshop addresses all aspects of the major written communication and will equip participants with a versatile toolkit to apply in the main forms of written communication interaction.
Through a blend of discussions, practical activities, role plays, video reviews and case studies, participants will:
- Recognize and be able to eliminate the barriers to written communication & “writers block”
