Written Communication Skills
Good written communication skills are the trademark of a top leader.
Our clients tell us that poor written communication skills frustrate them. Senior stakeholders waste time reading poorly written documents. They despair at sentences that have no point. They find themselves playing the role of editor and often rewriting documents altogether.
Tertiary education often encourages lengthy and wordy documents. This occurs when word targets are set for essays and dissertations. Students rarely come to grips with the needs of future employers. They enter the workforce with little or no knowledge of what good writing looks like. We come across many people for whom poor written communication skills haunt them for much of their careers.
“Writing isn’t letters on paper.
– Isaac Marion
