Are you confused by the difference between continual and continuous? Or when to use who vs. whom? Are your emails full of acronyms, such as BRB, TTYL, or IDK? Do you use a lot of passive voice?
If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, then you probably need a grammar intervention.
As an admin, you’re responsible for writing and reading a lot of professional communications – including emails, memos, presentations, and more. And these materials aren’t just a reflection of you, but your executive, too. So, what kind of impression are you making?
If your grammar skills are lacking, that impression probably isn’t a good one.
Proper grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation can go a long way in improving your professional and personal communications. And improving your skills doesn’t require a return to grade school! You just need to take the initiative to dust off your punctuation prowess and be more mindful of the grammar snafus that can trip you up.
