9780814474631: Write Up the Corporate Ladder: Successful Writers Reveal the Techniques That Help You Write with Ease and Get Ahead

"Anyone who wants to succeed in the workplace needs to present ideas clearly, persuasively . . . and in writing. But until now, business-writing books have emphasized rules and mechanics, which often stifle the writing process. Write Up the Corporate Ladder introduces a new, simplified approach to writing based on the way professional writers write, emphasizing the importance of ""writer's intuition"" and ""message over mechanics"" to enable readers to write both faster and smarter on the job. This helpful book spells out the difference between good, bad, and mediocre writing, provides step-by-step instructions for bringing out your own best ideas, and features personal interviews with Fortune 500 executives and best-selling business authors like Ken Blanchard, Michael Lewis, Suze Orman, and others. Valuable tools include: * Tips on how to break the rules that undermine effective business writing * A special chapter on writing content-rich one-page memos and concise e-mails * A custom Action Plan for determining skill level and tracking improvement * A comprehensive list of online writing resources"

About the Author:

Kevin Ryan (Sandy, UT), whose writing-training clients include Lucent Technologies, Procter & Gamble, and Novell, is President of The Executive Writer. His work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and other national publications.

From Booklist:

Most guides to business writing focus on a rigid set of rules and fail to acknowledge the intuitive process involved in all good writing. As a writing-training consultant, Ryan teaches how to break out of the traditional dry, hard-to-decipher writing of typical corporate documents. This book is presented in three parts. In part 1, "The Plan Then Write Method," Ryan offers a straightforward approach to transferring thoughts and ideas to paper. It's the same method that professional writers use to convey their messages in a simple, concise fashion. Part 2 features interviews with well-known business writers such as Ken Blanchard, Gail Evans, and Michael Lewis, who talk about the challenges of the creative process. In part 3, Ryan interviews Fortune 500 executives about the importance of good writing skills. He reminds us how the computer has transformed our correspondence, particularly through the use of e-mail. There are examples of good and bad writing, tips on editing and proofreading, and information on using templates. Ryan has followed his own advice to create a very useful guide. David Siegfried
