Writing with Authority Webinar
Your words represent you when you’re not present. Do they project authority and confidence? Or do conversational patterns slip into your writing and either give up your authority or shut down collaboration?
In this two-part video series, Erin Lebacqz and Anne Janzer tackle the delicate, and critical, topic of writing with authority in the workplace.
In Authority - Part Two, Erin offers actionable strategies and exercises, including:
- Using action-based writing to inhabit a more confident, authoritative voice
- Practical strategies for sharing power in writing, for better collaboration
- How cutting extraneous information and focusing on the reader’s needs strengthens your writing
Erin Lebacqz takes the lead in this webinar. She says she is excited to participate in this series:
"Creating this series with WordRake excites me because, by partnering with WordRake, business writers can better meet their goals.
