How a Writing Coach Can Help Your Employees
I’m a writing coach who works one-on-one with employees to help them improve their writing skills; identify, eliminate, or mitigate writing blocks; and increase their writing confidence.
Organizational communication is a unique form of writing that differs from other types of business writing in several, significant areas. I have spent more than 25 years as an organizational communicator, writing, editing, training, and consulting.
Specializing in the public sector.
Why you might want your employees to work with a writing coach
Coaching can help your employee improve their overall writing skills, or it can focus on a unique problem in a specific area, such as structural issues, clarity, writing within organizational style guides, or types of organizational communications, such as reports, policies, procedures, human resources materials, newsletters, and so on.
How I work with employees as a writing coach
I meet with the employee's manager to discuss the issues that we need to work on. Often, I ask for samples of their writing to understand the nature of the challenge, and we set goals with them
The employee sends me documents they have written, which I review and provide feedback on. Then we meet to discuss the feedback, answer questions, and discuss the next steps. Reports are provided to the manager, as requested.
We work together to close the gap between where they are now and where they need to go. The focus is on performance improvement.
All meetings are via phone or Zoom.
