Writing Coaching for Managers

About this course

Virtual (90 minutes)

If you’re like most managers, you rewrite documents your direct reports write instead of coaching them to become stronger independent writers. This increases your workload and stress, and demoralizes your staff. Instead, learn how to give your direct reports thoughtful feedback so you are helping them build and reinforce their skills and confidence over time.

If you have already provided a writing skills course to your staff, want to protect your investment, and keep the training alive,
