Good Writing skills are very useful for you in your leadership journey. Besides the spoken word, the written word is probably one of the most powerful influencers of the world today.
Rudyard Kipling said, “Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”
Learning how to write well can be a very powerful tool for you as a leader. Through your words, you connect with people; you build a relationship; you encourage; you sell a vision.
And in today’s world, communicating through words in writing is more often now becoming more necessary. Emails, sales letters, websites are being used to communicate your message across to your followers, your employees or even your customers.
Writing is not an easy thing on the web, but it’s simple. For many of us, we’ve been taught by our teachers and professors that the more complex you phrase your sentences, the better your writing.
It’s time to throw that thought down the drain.
Effective writing is simple
You can be a great writer today. Yes, today!
Truth be told, there aren’t many books or ebooks that actually teach you how to write well. But I’ve found one that I think would benefit you a lot. Among all the ebooks I’ve read about copywriting and writing well, this one is the best.
This 309 page ebook packed with superb content teaches great insights like:
• How to write a benefit focused copy rather than a feature focused
One of the most important points I caught from reading this ebook was two simple rules:
• Focus on meeting others’ needs instead of your own
While this ebook talks about selling on the internet, you can grab a lot of its principles and apply it to your written communication mediums like email or sales letters.
Learn how you can get your written message across in the clearest, most convincing way to anybody on your team.
