WRITING FOR RESULTS:A WORKSHOP


Stitelman Associates has found that managers and professionals spend, on average, over 30% of their time writing. Yet many of them have never had any writing instruction. In other words, they are doing a job for which they were never formally trained. Writing for Results: A Workshop presents a systematic approach to communicating ideas more effectively in writing.

BUSINESS ISSUES

Does your organization face any of the following writing-related business issues?

  • Important documents are not helping management make necessary decisions;
  • Valuable time is being wasted on follow-up and rework;
  • E-mail is overwhelming your employees, who lose additional time reading and writing
    unnecessary information;
  • Confusing documents are hurting your organization's professional image.

    OBJECTIVES

    Writing for Results addresses these issues and more. Our workshop will help your managers and professionals:

  • Write faster and more confidently;
  • Write documents that reduce reading time;
  • Persuade readers to accept ideas or take action;
  • Explain technical ideas to non-technical decision-makers;
  • Adjust their language to a global audience;
  • Write concretely, concisely, and clearly.

    FORMAT

    Pre-workshop writing assessment of actual work documents by instructor; job-relevant practice exercises; group discussion; individual and team editing practice; and individualized follow-up conferences for each participant.

    AUDIENCE

    We offer specialized versions of this workshop for managers, engineers, lawyers, and other professionals.

    PROGRAM LENGTH

    Varies from 1-day to 2½-days based on client needs and budget.
    Sessions can be conducted as an intensive or spread out over several weeks.
