Coaching

Many people at all levels have writing needs they prefer to deal with through personal coaching. The needs can range from straightforward topics such as grammar and punctuation to achieving tone, poise and influence in a document.

We have various coaching services:

  • Days made up of short individual sessions give a number of staff the chance to discuss their interests privately. This approach clears up concerns people may have had for years and helps them feel secure about their writing.
  • Half or whole days with one person working through topics agreed in advance.
  • Experienced writers receive detailed comment, perhaps by phone or email, about various aspects of their work and its likely effect on the intended readers.
  • Coaching can develop into mentoring programmes on site or at a distance for people who would like ongoing support.

As with our group training work, we always discuss needs thoroughly and use tailored materials. If there are likely to be development costs, we will quote in the early stages of any potential contract.
