Smart Business Writing: Short, Sweet and To-the-Point Reports (ST-0166)

If the skills you’d acquired by the time you wrote your last book report for school aren’t cutting it for you in the business world, this course can teach you what you need to know in three hours. Almost every professional has to write a short report at some point in his or her career, and despite the fact that it doesn’t have to be “long,” it can still be daunting – especially if you don’t like writing. This course will teach you to use the simple and extremely effective Pyramid method of writing to create the most common types of reports professionals will be faced with in their careers. The first category is Informative Short Reports, such as Incident, Field Trip, and Progress Reports, in which you present your information factually and do not expect your reader to reply or take specific action. The second is Persuasive Short Reports – for instance, a Recommendation or Inspection Report, in which you convince your reader to take the action you suggest. Don’t think you can do it? Sure you can! We unravel the mystery of effective writing within.
