Lead with Writing
Not all leaders are good writers, and not all writers are good leaders, but when good leaders and good writers meet great things happen.
Today we have announced the addition of Writing Services to our growing list of leadership offerings designed to help busy professionals manage better and lead well. You can read the press release here.
We are taking an iterative approach to writing projects, so the fixed fee philosophy we used in other areas still apply. We avoid per word, or per hour pricing because that model often leaves both sides unhappy.
This service will help busy professionals, from small business owners to corporate executives, who have trouble getting the right words from their heads to their mouths and onto the page, the screen, or the stage.
In addition to helping leaders communicate better through the written word, we also provide author consultation, for writers seeking help with business planning or organizing their next project. This service easily folds into our existing leadership development business.
There are several shared attributes between writers and leaders that writers tend to undervalue. Both are creative thinkers who have a burning desire to achieve a goal that sometimes feels elusive. Good writers shape opinions, build a following, cause introspection, and have an uncanny ability to move the spirit, if not the body. That’s leadership.
