As soon as you take one step up the career ladder, your effectiveness depends on your ability to communicate your thoughts in writing and in speaking. Peter Drucker (1909-2005)
Our communication courses include the Professional Writing Course and Critical Thinking through Writing, which comprise easily digestible modules with ongoing review and coaching through the Writing Practice. We have developed our interventions based on a clear understanding of why people struggle to communicate clearly and years of reviewing, editing and mentoring all standards of writing.
The key to communicating effectively is to think critically. Indeed, the ability to think critically is key to the success of both individuals and organisations. Writing is one of the best way to develop critical thinking, so we developed our Critical Thinking through Writing course.
We believe that anyone can improve their writing, and the starting point is our Professional Writing Course. The course consists of 6 modules that cover the key principles of effective written communication and can be customised to an organisation’s specific needs.
We also develop Customised Courses that build on the skills learned during the Professional Writing Course. These interventions are adapted for particular projects, organisations and teams, as well as differing levels of competency and types of writing. For example, writing emails, writing collaboratively, and writing minutes/running meetings.
Our modules are ideally delivered in a workshop setting, but they are also available via the Internet/Skype.
What makes us different?
- We encourage you to develop your writing skills rather than ‘give you answers’.
- We focus on the structure and flow of your document, not only the content.
- We combine face-to-face (classroom) with online support so that you learn effectively.
