The effective writing podcast - the BLUF model really worked for me today! It felt great!
I routinely have to put out 'reminder' emails to staff at my location.
As a high C I was writing one today and realised I had gotten a whole paragraph written without actually stating my simple point.
I recalled the podcast on effective writing. scrolled to the top of the email - bold and underline and typed the message 'when you're performing this role, please do this'.
Then I went on to explain the background to why, and then re-iterated the initial message.
I checked up with some recipients later and they knew exactly what I'd asked them to do.
It works! BLUF! Try it! Now I just realised I did it again! :)
