Changing the way people work or how organisations deliver services requires significant investment. Without effective communications, this investment can be wasted.

Keeping your internal stakeholders informed and supported through change is critical, and this requires strong, clear and, at times, compassionate writing. It is a fundamental of good change management and of communicating change in an organisation.

This course covers essential techniques, including writing with empathy for your employees, achieving positive outcomes when delivering bad news and writing for different channels such as intranet, instant messaging and email. You can be confident the materials will be relevant and targeted for your team, as we’ll create them using real-life examples from your organisation.

A key feature of this course is that all delegates receive our unique pre-course writing analysis. This covers 15 different areas of writing skills and helps us ensure the training meets the delegates’ precise writing needs.

By the end of Writing to communicate change, attendees will be able to:

understand the emotions employees experience when faced with change and tailor their writing accordingly
remove ‘project speak’ and make content accessible and easy to read for all internal audiences
build a logical structure for all change communications
learn how to get key messages read by audiences at different levels within an organisation
use different channels more effectively
deliver key messages – whether good or bad – in a way that achieves a positive response from your employees
avoid common grammar traps and proofread internal communications content for errors.
