One-on-One Business Writing Coaching

Do you need to improve your business writing skills fast? Richard can help!

Richard Kronick has worked one-on-one with many business professionals, including lawyers, city planners, journalists, and managers, to quickly ramp up their writing skills. Because Richard is a business writer with more than three decades of experience, he understands what business writers need to know — and because Richard has presented more than 1,000 business writing and technical writing seminars, he has developed proven concepts and strategies that help businesspeople improve their writing quickly. A typical consultation works like this:

  1. The businessperson writes a draft of a real business document and sends it to Richard.
      
  2. Richard sends the businessperson a detailed, respectful report discussing both positives and negatives in the writing.
      
  3. To ensure that the businessperson understands exactly how to improve, Richard and the businessperson discuss the report — either in person or on the phone. When appropriate, Richard provides explanations, worksheets, and reference materials.
      
  4. Based on the strategies discussed in step 3, the businessperson writes a second draft of the document. In all previous consultations, the second draft has been dramatically better than the first draft.
      
  5. At this point, Richard and the businessperson decide if further help is needed. Often, this is the end of the consultation.
