The Executive Writing course uses the seven traits of effective writing to help you improve your own work and the writing of those whom you manage. The traits help you diagnose problems and apply specific strategies to remedy them. The traits also give you and your colleagues a common language for discussing writing.
Clear explanations and examples teach key concepts, and activities for writing and editing help you practice what you learn. Each lesson ends with a wrap-up activity and quiz, and a pre- and post-assessment track your overall learning.
