— Molly Badgett, The Business Scribe
It helps to relearn some things
That’s because, I’m convinced, you learned it at too young an age the first time! At least where business communications is concerned. And because, regardless of what some people say, practice doesn’t always make perfect; bad habits of communication are only repeated if left unaddressed. But be certain of this: Poor communication habits reflect poorly on you and your company, both internally and externally.
Let The Business Scribe re-introduce relevant rules of writing and thought-organization so you and your team communicate more effectively. I’ll explain productive ways to move business forward through correspondence, and to ground communication in clear and familiar language that breaks barriers to understanding.
I’ll provide specific training messages to young managers, in particular, as they take on more responsibility for communicating with others who are important to your organization.
