“Regardless of the changes in technology, the market for well-crafted messages will always have an audience.” — Steve Burnett
In order to produce a high level of written communication one must write clearly, succinctly and creatively to engage their audience.
Effective written communication allows individuals across departments, disciplines and areas of expertise to establish connection and understanding with one another. It allows people to freely communicate despite time and location. It also provides opportunity to contemplate and respond thoughtfully to messages that are sent. No matter what strides our world makes in developing technology and alternative communication methodologies, businesses and relationship success will always depend upon effective written communication skills.
For some, writing a simple email or composing a speech or article comes naturally; but for many of us, the idea of writing conjures up anxiety and hesitation. It doesn’t have to be that way. Writing is just like every other skill. We develop writing skills by understanding the component parts and then practicing until our ability and confidence grow.
