Maurice Kerrigan Business Writing Skills

Business Writing Skills Training

Poor writing is a hidden source of friction that causes more delays and frustrations in an organisation than you would imagine. Typically, businesspeople spend a large part of their workday either writing or reading. And any communication that is too long, poorly organised, unclear, filled with jargon, and imprecise is ineffective and wastes a lot of their time. Fuzzy writing allows fuzzy thinking as every reader of the document will build a different mental model of its intent. This can cause confusion, disagreement and even conflict.

Clear writing that is well-organised creates trust and inspires people. Clarity and directness in documents show that you really mean what you are saying and have the arguments to support your ideas. Readers will be more amenable to supporting your initiatives.

Rather than tackling writing from within the system of grammatical theory, we look at how the reading brain processes sentences and paragraphs and hence identify effective writing techniques by focusing on the audience.
