Written Communication Skills

ID: 54534
Topics: Essential Skills + Professional Development Transformational CPA Curriculum

Have you ever written and sent an internal memo only to realize it was full of errors? Or maybe you sent a quick email to your boss only to realize it wasn’t nearly as professional as it should have been?

These situations can cause us a lot of anxiety, and they can give other people a bad impression of us.

We use written communication every day — think about how often you write an email or send a text message — so it is important that we understand what constitutes clear, concise, and professional writing. Written communication is also important because it can make all the difference between obtaining or losing a new client, impressing or confounding your colleagues, or effectively convincing key stakeholders. Put in that light, it’s obvious why good written communication is so important!
