Why we’re here:
Behind every company or organization’s success is one secret ingredient: good communication. When communication falls apart, it takes the organization down with it.
We’re here to protect companies from the costs of bad communication and help employees be more connected, more effective, and more productive by learning to write and communicate better.
What we teach:
We believe there are three core values at the heart of good business communication.
- Know your purpose.
- Engage your reader.
- Know your point and make it clearly.
Writing and communicating well are not just about putting words on a page. To write well, you need to have a clear sense of direction, to understand the person on the other end, and to apply the language skills that will protect you from embarrassing mistakes.
All of our trainings connect with these core values. To view a more comprehensive list of training topics, visit our training page.
What you need to know:
All of our trainings are customized.
We know that your employees learn best when the training material is relevant to them. We also know that every client has different needs and concerns when it comes to writing and communication.
That’s why when we work with you, we consult with you first. Then we ask for writing samples to do our own “diagnostic” of the problems. Finally, we follow up with you after a first training to tweak and tailor the training to exactly what you need.
