Executive Writing uses the seven traits of effective writing to help you improve your own work and the writing of those you manage. The traits help you diagnose problems and apply specific strategies to remedy them. You'll learn to analyze each writing situation, craft a clear main point, support it with key details, and communicate using plain language. You'll also write important management forms such as policies, procedures, responses to official inquiries, and executive summaries.

Clear explanations, examples, and videos teach key concepts, and digital activities for writing and editing help you practice what you learn. Each learning module ends with a quiz, and a pre- and post-assessment track your overall learning.
