Why executive coaching?

As you get further up the career ladder, it becomes ever more important to ensure your written communication has the right impact. At the same time, the consequences of making a mistake can increase in parallel.

Yet, even as a top professional, you may still have to rely solely on techniques you learned at school and university. After leaving education, it’s easy to believe that your writing skills are set in stone – and they’ll have to see you through every business situation.

However, from over 20 years’ experience of providing writing training, we’ve found that excellent business-writing skills can be learned. And they can make all the difference to an individual’s career – and to an organisation’s success.

Our one-to-one coaching will equip you with the confidence and ability to tackle business writing with ease – no matter what you need to write.

What do we do?

Our one-to-one coaching offers flexible, confidential, tailor-made training anywhere in the world – even at short notice.

It’s particularly suited to executives with busy schedules looking to upskill, as well as to tackling problems that might be difficult to address in a group setting.

We develop one-to-one programmes to meet your exact needs. And we deliver the programmes worldwide. Whether you want face-to-face or remote training, we’ll work to your deadline and can even run programmes during evenings and weekends.

How will we work with you?

Working one to one with an expert trainer means you’ll learn as quickly and efficiently as possible.

You’ll benefit from feedback on samples of writing you provide before the coaching, which will quantify your strengths and weaknesses with our unique 15-point writing analysis.

The result is targeted learning that concentrates on your weak areas and quickly builds your skills. The one-to-one format also means you can feel comfortable exploring issues and asking any questions in complete confidence.

Who have we done this for?

We have worked with top executives from some of the world’s leading organisations.

Here’s what Hazel Bedford from the international financial institution IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development) had to say about her coaching experience:

‘I write my organisation’s annual report – a massive task that involves stitching together and rewriting input from up to 30 people. I used three one-on-one sessions with my trainer to work on key sections of the year’s report.

‘It really helped to tighten up my writing style, give the report a unique voice and make it engaging and readable.

‘It was also a great way to get some detailed feedback from an informed reader. I use all the tips and techniques I learnt with Emphasis in my day-to-day work.

‘Everyone at Emphasis was helpful and friendly and the training was easy to book, even at short notice. I hope to be back for some top-up training soon.’
