Course Outline

Lessons

Course Length: 6hrs (1 day)

We all know what good writing is. It's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forgot, and the speech that changes the way we look at the world. Good writing is the memo that gets action and the letter that says what a phone call can't.

In business writing, the language is concrete, the point of view is clear, and the points are well expressed. Good writing is hard work, and even the best writers get discouraged. However, with practice you can feel more confident about your own writing. This workshop will give participants the tools to become better writers.

Learning Objectives:
- The value of good written communication.
- How to write and proofread your work so it is clear, concise, complete, and correct.
- How to apply these skills in real world situations.
- Understanding the proper format for memos, letters, and e-mails.

Target Student
Everybody in the workplace who needs to communicate with colleagues or clients will benefit from this course. If you want to write a more impressive résumé, or if you want to gain a significant edge for advancement purposes, then this course is for you. Good writing is an extremely valuable skill, and everybody in a business environment can benefit from the lessons covered in this course.

Course Outline
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

Why Write?
Many people feel that writing is a burden or something they should be able to delegate. This session will help participants identify the value of writing.

The Four C's
Participants will discuss the four C's of writing: clear, concise, complete, and correct. Participants will practice each C through writing exercises.

Word Agreement
During this session, participants will explore word agreement through a brief lecture and a writing exercise.

Active and Passive Voice
Most people prefer to read writing that is in the active voice. We will discuss and practice both voices during this session.

Sentences and Sentence Types
This session will discuss the structure of sentences and paragraphs. Then, participants will apply this knowledge to a writing exercise.

Manners and Courtesy
Courtesy is an important principle of good business writing. During this session, participants will examine and rank several business letters, helping them explore their own style and preference.

Practical Language
It is important to use words that best reflect what you are trying to say. In this session, we will examine some common dilemmas (such as fewer vs. less) and suggested solutions.

Inclusive Language
Another key part of writing is political correctness. Participants will have an opportunity to re-write some exclusive terms to make them inclusive.

Sentence Construction
The two basic rules for constructing sentences are: use construction that makes meaning clear and keep construction parallel. Participants will re-write sentences that don't follow these rules.

Punctuation
During this session, participants will work in teams to develop a series of test questions for other teams. We have included some key points that you can use to debrief the test.

Writing Business Letters
This session begins with three lectures on the steps for writing a business letter, types of letters, and the parts of a business letter. Participants will then examine samples of business letters to determine the type and the parts of each letter.

Writing Effective E-mails
Virtually everyone today uses e-mail to communicate at work and at home. This session will give participants some tips on writing effective e-mails and managing mail.

Spelling and Proofreading
Proofreading carelessly can spoil a writer's best efforts. This session will help participants identify common spelling errors and practice their proofreading skills.

Reviewing Your Writing
In this session, participants will customize a checklist to help them ensure that each document is the best that they can do.

Writing Challenges
To wrap up the workshop, participants will work in small groups to identify some possible solutions to the ten most common writing challenges.

Workshop Wrap-Up
At the end of the workshop, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

Philippe was really good at catering the training to our needs. He figured out what our prior knowledge was on the topic and went from there istead of having us go over things we already knew. If we had been in a group setting this would not have been possible. He also was helpful in letting us know how the 2003 version was different from the 2010. We therefore purchased an additional training manual for the 2010 version as we recently had it installed on our workstations.

There was a little mix up with the time the course was to be held. The website said 9-4 but it should have been 10-5, so when I arrived no one was there. However, it was dealt with quickly after a call and the trainer arrived quickly. I was the only person attending the course, it was very informative and it allowed us to touch on all of the questions I had specifically.

The instructor was excellent - she was very knowledgeable, patient, and really tried to tailor the course and specific examples to each student. The room was bit too cold in the morning and quite warm in the afternoon, so I would recommend wearing layers for comfort! I would highly recommend this course.
