Graded: Students will earn a verified certificate for completing this course. Description: Remember the days when people communicated face-to-face – or even by phone? In an era where teams are constantly traveling or working in different locations, writing is often the easiest way to communicate. Like body language, your writing style can convey messages you might not expect. Your grammar and word choices can reflect your personal values, education level, and temperament. It can bolster your image – or undermine your credibility. In this course, you’ll learn how to craft clear and succinct messages that reinforce your objective within the right context. You’ll read examples of the most common writing mistakes, along with “analyzing, writing and revising a wide spectrum of business documents” such as business proposals and memos. The course will taught through 8-12 minute lecture videos, with students evaluated through quizzes. Review: No reviews. Additional Notes: This is the second part of a Business Communication for Career Readiness specialization available through Coursera. Students will receive a specialization certificate that reflects that they completed three courses (including “Communication in the 21st Century Workplace” and “Art of Negotiation”) and a capstone project. The total cost of a certification is $196. Previous Page Continue ReadingPage 10 of 21 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 Comments or questions about this article? Email us.
