Business Writing for Results


Participants in this course will learn the techniques of "power writing" designed to promote an immediate movement to action. In all types of writing, from business letters, to memos, to emails, there are certain writing methods that encourage perception by the reader, as well as steps to take before even beginning to write. What style should you choose? Is essay better than specific goals? Learn how the letter's appearance is almost as important as the message itself, and how to write in an active voice that urges the action you desire from the reader.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Develop "power writing" techniques to reach your audience
  • Gain the tools to write more effectively in various formats
  • Identify strategies to urge action from the reader

This course may be taken independently or applied toward a 10-course certificate in Human Resources Management or Supervisory Management offered through Extended Studies.
