Individual Writing Coaching
Writing coaching can help individuals improve the speed and efficiency of their content. Groups, too, can benefit from writing coaching:
|Intern sent email to clients that was embarrassingly informal
and filled with errors.
|Manager hired a writing consultant to provide training on professional email standards.|
|Head of a state agency wanted to improve compliance with regulations.||Readability testing helped staffers write for business people, not Ph.Ds.|
|Scientists devoted several days exclusively to writing research reports.||Writing coach showed how to schedule short, frequent writing periods and build final reports from lab notes.|
|University department had to compete with outside vendors.||Writing coach helped develop models for responding to typical requests and set departmental communication standards.|
While each case is different, these examples show how training, process analysis, and follow-up writing coaching can be combined to tailor writing instruction to various groups and business needs.
