Specialists and managers are required to complete a variety of writing tasks, authoring texts for various audiences (often with tight deadlines) – for example, reports, draft proposals, essays, welcome addresses or articles for trade journals.

In this course, you will learn how to write about complex topics more intelligibly as well as plan, structure and manage your writing tasks. You will learn tips and tricks for concise writing and get suggestions on how to maximise the impact of your text.

Our training helps you (teams, specialists and managers) to manage your professional writing tasks and to effectively express yourself in writing. We tailor the content of the training to meet your specific needs. By getting to know your “writer’s voice” better and using the right strategies, you can transform writing from a tedious chore into a career driver – and perhaps even something you will come to really enjoy.

  • What is a well-written text?
  • Reader-focused writing
  • Plan, pen, polish: the three stages of writing
  • Identifying your personal writing strengths and weaknesses
  • Changing (subconscious) avoidance strategies
  • Time management
  • Dealing with writer’s block the right way
  • Drafting a text concept
  • Developing and organising ideas
  • Typical pitfalls of writing in German
  • Brief, clear, precise: simple rules for writing intelligibly
  • Rough drafts and fine-tuning: revising texts

During this training, our trainer will alternate between short, informative input and one-on-one and group exercises. Exercises are completed “live” with text samples. To ensure participants can put what they have learned into practice, they will create a personal “toolbox” containing the most useful techniques for them.
