Writing that motivates others to act and follow standards is a talent that doesn’t come naturally to many of us. After years of academic and professional pressure, we default to using fancy schmancy words and over-explaining things—cluttering the core message and losing a reader’s interest before the second sentence.
Let’s fix that! This plain language guide encourages you to do away with what you think a compliance document—including policies, training, and reports—should look or sound like and take a reader-centered approach.
We’ll make sure your communication is spotlight-ready by showing you how to define and refine your message by answering three big questions with detailed checklists and contrasting examples:
What do you want to say?
How should you say it?
How should you format it?
Your employees will appreciate how simple you’ve made compliance. You’ll appreciate fewer questions in your inbox.
