This is a legitimate challenge for most professionals. Anyone is capable of becoming an effective business writer. However, like anything worth doing well, it takes discipline.
To begin, read tips on how to become a better writer. Then note how your six-component Communications Strategy will be invaluable when you plan/lead projects, launch initiatives or implement change programmes. Next, overcome your phobia of formal writing with the actionable tips given. Finally, become an expert in crafting powerful emails that guarantee results.
Don't settle for just being 'good enough'. Go all out to become memorable by elevating your communication skills. Practise them in season and out of season, and you will be amazed at how quickly you improve.
Be that 'purple cow' in the herd of good-enough-but-boring brown cows.
The quest to being remarkable should begin with the awareness that differentiation is necessary for career advancement.
So become more knowledgeable in your role and use your (hopefully) newly enhanced communication skills to boost your competence.
Become the 'purple cow' and strive to consistently improve by bringing unmatched and undisputed value to the organisation.
And don't forget to thank Seth Godin when you advance rapidly through the ranks.
