Written communication and verbal communication are two essential skills at work, and with the popularity of remote work, the former has become especially important. So how can we improve our written communication at work? Today's share gave some advice:

  1. do not strive for perfect grammar, but do not ignore grammar either.
  2. consider the target audience for any writing and try to write in a language they can understand.
  3. be clear about the goal of any writing and that writing with a goal is likely to be effective writing.
  4. to seek some writing assistance, such as proofreading, automated grammar tools, etc., if possible.

If you find today's sharing helpful, why not share it with your friends?

Excerpt

  • Writing has become even more essential with the rise of chat tools like Slack, as well as the increase in remote work.
  • Your goal in fostering good writing is to help employees communicate effectively. Grammar, in the end, is just a set of rules designed to ensure folks understand your writing.
  • Every piece of writing has a purpose.
  • If a person’s writing achieves its intended purpose, chances are it’s good writing.
  • Poor writing forces the reader to invest additional time and energy into deciphering the intended message.
  • Writing clearly, on the other hand, demonstrates that the writer respects the reader’s time.
  • Self-reflection has the power to improve well-being and performance.
