Emails are a core business communication tool. The speed and volume of email have dramatically changed business communication. The not-so-old standards for professional correspondence have changed and will continue to do so. Employees need to know the best strategies to communicate effectively. An effective business email is easily understood, but it is not so easily written.
We have all received poorly written emails. These emails are unclear, and ambiguous, and often get ignored. They can cause confusion. They can also be detrimental to the business if projects are impeded or if clients misinterpret information. Fortunately, this communication skill can be improved with training, and the payoff is that these clearer emails improve business communication and productivity.
This course will teach you how to write clearer emails to receive better responses. Well-written emails save time because they allow the recipient to clearly understand the task at hand and respond appropriately. Effective emails reduce confusion and increase productivity. And they are much faster to write than snail mail. This course will teach you the basics of an effective email.
