About this course
In recent years, a variety of technologies such as social media and live-chat has inspired a new approach to business communication. Mobile communication, particularly text messaging has put pressure on traditional standards of grammar, punctuation and writing in general.
No matter what communication platform you choose to use, your ability to put ideas across professionally and effectively is an essential business skill for executives to advance in their career. Yet workers feel the need to choose between writing well and writing fast at work.
Sometimes the only exposure you may have to high-level stakeholders is through your writing. If your messages are professional and convincing, they convey an impression of you being a well-organized person who knows exactly what is needed and how to make things happen. Messages that are disorganized and poorly written can tarnish your professional reputation.
