Synopsis

Most books on business writing focus on rules, without emphasizing the inspiration and energy needed to produce effective writing. This manual features interviews with professional business writers, showing how the techniques they use can result in persuasive writing in the workplace.

Excerpt

Write Up the Corporate Ladder shows businesspeople the rules-free, intuitive writing process professional writers use to clearly and concisely convey their ideas to others. It’s a practical, commonsense approach to writing that anyone can master. More important, this method will help you write with ease, improve your critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and save your company time and money on every project you write.

While this book is about writing, it’s also about clear thinking because in one sense writing is simply the physical representation of our thoughts on paper. Writing and speaking are the two primary ways we share our ideas and conduct business. Of the two, writing is not only the dominant form of business communication in the world, it’s also a fundamental part of everyone’s thinking process, which is why learning to write well also helps us become better thinkers.

Your value as a business professional is measured, in great part, by your ability to think up and implement innovative ideas, whether it’s a solution to the employee parking crisis or a breakthrough product that will put your company on the Fortune 500 list. The goal of this book is to help you learn how to effectively and persuasively communicate your good ideas and advance your career.
