IV. THE SURGICAL METHOD: 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE WRITERS (1:15 – 2:00PM)
Nobody sets out to be unclear. But in trying to sound important, lawyers, doctors, government agencies, banks, and even marketers often complicate their messages with unnecessary language. In this day and age when attention span has been reduced to 140 characters, it's more important than ever to be clear and simple. These 7 steps can simplify your sentences so you can improve understanding while avoiding subjectivity.
