The key feature of Jeanne’s success as a Business Writing Coach is her willingness to be fully and personally present with you, while helping you express yourself more clearly in writing, according to your own learning style and pace. She employs a highly intuitive and nurturing method that will increase your confidence. You will begin to be less fearful when you approach a writing task and getting your ideas onto the page will become easier. The main part of a Writing Coach’s job is to be present, provide support through the learning process, and allow you to access the inner part of yourself that knows how to write.
In business writing, where “time is money,” written pieces require precise and concise language. Communications are often written quickly, in the interest of efficiency. Consequently, time can be lost at the receiving end, if the reader cannot understand the actual point of the email, memo, or report. The summary of a study published by Personnel Update states: “Writing skills…of executives are shockingly low, indicating that schools and colleges dismally fail with at least two-thirds of the people who pass through the education pipeline coming out unable to write a simple letter.” Jeanne offers a one-on-one assessment to identify weaknesses; she diagnoses problems, spots weak sentences, recognizes confused paragraphs, and identifies patterns of grammatical errors to create individualized lesson plans that meet you where you are in your writing skills. Learn to express yourself in emails, reports and written pieces so that your writing is equal to your leadership abilities.
No piece of writing falls out of your head onto the page, even for seasoned writers. There is a step-by-step process that includes using tools for brainstorming, writing drafts, learning methods for proofreading, and finalizing a draft that reflects what you really mean to say!
