Sometimes you need to share important information with a group of stakeholders — clients, employees, investors, even the general public. You want the message to be clear and accurate; you want the message to relay relevant details and answer questions before they arise.
You know what you want to say, but you find yourself avoiding the writing process because it feels hard to put words to paper. It is hard for you to lay out the information in a concise manner, and you also have doubts about whether your grammar is on point.
You think about how your name will be attached to the info being sent out, so you want the messaging to be polished and professional. That totally makes sense. You are not alone in those feelings!
Today, humans tend to get cranky about misused words and typos. This is an unfortunate truth. At PR Consulting in Bellingham, WA, we always encourage people to have more grace with others. We’re all human, after all.
That said, messaging that isn’t clear or that includes bad grammar can impact the reputation of a corporation.
It is totally normal for leaders to feel anxious about corporate communications!
