Writing For Results

Paperwork

 
 
Whether you are new to
business writing, writing at and to
a high level, managing others’
writing or in a role requiring
impact and influence,
there is always more we can do
to make our writing work harder.


 
Three things are critical: knowing how to structure the document is vital for impact; understanding the issue from the reader’s point of view makes it relevant; and using language powerfully makes it interesting. With these in place we earn the reader’s respect, and with respect comes a higher potential for agreement.
