business writing basics
It all starts with the Basics. Much of what is covered in Lesson 1, the Basics of Business Writing, are general principles of all good professional business writing. This business writing lesson discusses writing as a discipline and the habits of good writers. These are basics that many of us didn’t learn well enough in grade or high school.  But busy businesspeople, we don’t want to revisit or do a refresher course in high school English. Something common in some corporate remedial writing classes. Professionals want to identify what writing hurdles they consistently encounter and consistently mishandle. The Basics of Business Writing doesn’t attempt to School You Now” but to “Show You How”. By helping identity personal weaknesses and repetitive mistakes, the lesson teaches students how to spot them and how to correct them. This is a key difference between the WRITING FOR BUSINESS and some other courses on business writing. The Basics of Business Writing lesson focuses on the foundational standards of good written written business communication. It reviews best practices in document structure, sentence formatting, and grammar.  The lesson emphasizes best practices such as using concise language and unambiguous words designed to express, not impress. All writing has a clearly defined purpose.  That fact holds true in novels, dissertations, music lyrics, as well as business writing.  Writing should make a definite point. Hence, creating a roadmap of how a written document should be structured.  Good writing presents a specific theme with supportive facts, explanatory information, and credible sources that makeup content in its sentences and paragraphs. The Basics of Business Writing Lesson package is a 45-minute HD video and a 70-page companion Workbook.
