Because corporate higher-ups and stakeholders can't support your ideas—or recognize you for them—without first understanding what they are, communicating clearly and concisely in written and oral formats is critical to your professional success.
From clarifying and structuring your ideas to designing the PowerPoint slides that will best complement them, the techniques, interactive exercises, and checklists in this suite will help you create presentations and workplace documents that inform and persuade.
This certificate offers instruction on crafting many of the most common business communication formats: memos, reports, brochures, proposals, presentations, catalogs, and websites. Topics include formal and informal outlining techniques, using email appropriately in an organizational setting, and revising for wordiness, unnecessary phrases, redundancy, and jargon.
Each 3 to 5 hour, self-pace course offers an assortment of interactive exercises, videos, selected readings, case studies, and self-assessments that will engage you and help you consider how your own attitudes towards leadership might promote or impeded your leadership success.
