Lesson Excerpt:

With the prevalence of electronic communication tools used in the business world, it is now increasingly common for employees to need effective writing skills when in the past it wasn't necessary. In addition, with the globalization of today’s business market, employees must communicate with co-workers in several countries with varying degrees of expertise in English. Mistakes in these circumstances can create lots of problems.

In many cases, your professional credibility will rely on your ability to communicate effectively, especially in writing. You may even have to communicate directly with your customers. Not only can writing clearly and effectively make a great difference in work flow, and reduce the chance for errors due to misinterpretation, but it can also help you shine above your peers and help you get promoted.
