2/28/14 If you want to be a business leader, then brush up on your writing skills, says Paul Danos in a recent interview for a Forbes.com article. Danos, Dean of Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, the longest-serving dean at a top U.S. business school, explains his belief as follows:
- In the age of new media, people don’t take the time to structure their thoughts into paragraphs and sentences for good communication.
- In business, people really stand out if they are articulate, if they can actually write sentences and can get them presented properly.
The message for the aspiring MBA business leader – brushing up on your writing skills – can make a real difference in how others perceive your work. The good news is there are ways to improve one’s writing. In a previous MyeEMBA article, I described how to use technology to unlearn bad writing behavior. In this article, I want to describe another approach: hire an editor to help improve your written work.
