As a member of management, writing is vital to the success of your team, projects, and career. You are called to write documents that will be used to represent your organization, as catalyst to garner resources, or to position your group for success. Due to the increased usage of technology, the importance of high impact communication has increased as well. As a leader there is not ample time to be visionary, manage projects, develop people and be a prolific, proficient writer.
Writing for Leadership has been developed with the demands on a leader in mind. It focuses on providing practical techniques to write reports, summaries, evaluations, emails, etc. with higher quality and in less time. This is a hands-on, one-day course developed by former senior managers, who have experience as editors of publications and recognize the demands of being a leader in a corporate environment.
