High Impact Thinking
This smart hands-on session teaches busy, stressed people how to bust the re-write cycle, the single most expensive office nightmare. VanWrite truly shows business people how to plan an entire project before writing a single sentence. We believe that it is never wise to think in complete sentences because everybody thinks SO much faster than they can write. Visual thinking allows staff to work quickly and clearly; this is especially important as employers struggle with reduced staff and increased workloads.
VanWrite provides and demonstrates many templates that help professionals juggle competing priorities gracefully, manage projects efficiently, and facilitate better meetings. This session pivots on edutainment the audience will use at their work sites, AND at home! High Impact Thinking teaches leaders and staff new ways to grasp, develop, and share ideas quickly, skills that promote employee retention and motivation.
This hands-on session shows participants how to expedite the editing process. Using color, Sentence Aerobics targets the pulse points of any sentence and converts writing flab to lean muscle. It focuses on those sentence elements that increase Reader Comfort so the reader obtains, retains, and accesses the writer’s message easily. Based on objective rules described in Linda Vanderwold’s book, Target Editing, this session goes far beyond grammar rules and writing tips.
Sentence Aerobics is unique among writing programs because it is a proven method that can be easily learned and measured. Other writing programs are little more than a collection of grammar rules, tips, and examples that are difficult to remember and apply. Sentence Aerobics produces immediate measurable results that are reinforced by software every time participants write.
