Executive Writing Coaching

To write like a leader, you must convey explicit and persuasive messages to direct reports, clients, shareholders and others. High-quality writing has been positively linked to effective leadership (a hypothesis Jack hopes to further support in his dissertation study in Organizational Communication at the State University of New York at Albany). See blog: Improve Business Writing.

Jack will help you tailor your writing to the dynamics of your organization. You’ll master frequently written emails and other documents, ensuring that your messages support your goals as an executive and leader.
