This is not a remedial writing program for “problem writers.” This course is for everyone who needs to work with other individuals, teams, departments, and clients to meet important deadlines, keep projects on target, and solve problems.

“Companies lose an Estimated $400 Billion in lost productivity due to bad writing” – Brad Hoover, CEO of GrammArly

Give your team the tools to write clear, effective emails and other documents that motivate people to read, respond and act. Help your organization meet important deadlines, keep projects on target and solve problems.


Writing to Get Things Done® (WGTD) promotes direct, on-the-job business writing skills and cooperation from all levels of leadership. Whether communicating with colleagues, subordinates, customers, or managing your boss, leaders must write in the spirit of cooperation to clearly communicate what to do, why/how to do it, and when.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Simplify the structure of your writing
  • Organize documents according to the three models of WGTD
  • Start emails with the action item
  • Share technical information with non-technical people
  • Clarify your thoughts before writing
  • Eliminate business-speak and use a language of getting things done
  • Separate the readers’ needs from the writers’ needs
  • Develop a professional tone that encourages cooperation
  • Use a listing paragraph format to highlight key ideas
