Boost Productivity—At Your Own Pace

Online Writing to Get Things Done® (WGTD)


Online Writing to Get Things Done® (WGTD) is a self-directed interactive and entertaining web-based learning experience that shows you how to think and write from the reader’s perspective. The skills and concepts taught in this course teach the participant to present their ideas clearly in all business communications, including emails, reports, and voice mails.

As a self-directed program, employees can complete the course at their own pace. Progress is automatically bookmarked so learners can pick-up where they left off. Average time to complete the course is six to eight hours.

The course challenges the mind and keeps the learner engaged with these interactive learning aids:

  • Frequent inquiries and animations
  • Numerous writing samples with rewrites
  • Short video clips and narration
  • Engaging games and quizzes
  • 100-page course book in PDF format
  • Concise Quick-Check Skills Card in PDF format
  • A review of student’s own writing samples at the end of each module.


WGTD: Online focuses on improving actual on-the-job business writing skills. At the start of the course, participants collect several of their own business writing samples. Throughout the program, they follow specific instructions to critique and rewrite these samples to strengthen and reinforce the key concepts of each module. This hands-on approach personalizes the learning experience and facilitates the transfer of effective business writing skills to the workplace.

By the end of this class participants will be able to:

  • Clarify thoughts before writing
  • Keep a business perspective
  • Separate the readers’ needs from the writer’s needs
  • Use the inverted-pyramid principle of organization
  • Use a listing paragraph format to highlight key ideas
  • Use the language of getting things done vs. business speak
  • Develop a professional tone that encourages cooperation
  • Use our three models of organization for all business writing, including emails
  • Write technical information to non-technical people
