Workshop - Advanced Business Writing Skills.
In an era where technology has enabled globalization and instant interaction across borders, the Indian manager has to communicate in writing with people across geographies, cultures & socio-economic backgrounds.
The business world today is characterized by Information overload and short attention spans. Therefore, it's vital to communicate clearly, concisely and effectively. People don't have time to read lengthy emails, and they don't have the patience to decipher badly-constructed emails or reports for 'buried' points.
The better writing skills a person has, the better the impression they make on the people around - including clients, colleagues, and the boss. It will also help to be more effective in communicating ideas and therefore improve the acceptance of ideas.
Ability to write well is a 'must have' attribute to get ahead in today's competitive business world. This requires specific skills to be adopted - first through training intervention and then by continuous individual practice.
This workshop aims at adding a critical dimension to the manager's repertoire of skills, through the effective use of written communication.
