for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Many business professionals do not know how to spell or how to tell the difference between sound-alike words.
In the past, senior executives were protected by assistants who “fixed up” their mistakes. Now most professionals do their own writing (at least in e-mails). Many professionals have been able to “cover up” their deficiencies – but now their credibilty-eroding mistakes are exposed for all to see.
I see it all the time in boardrooms around country – especially in Power-Point presentations. Sometimes it’s because professionals are too busy – other times they just don’t know the difference between confusable words – complimentary and complementary, affect and effect, principle and principal.
And spell check will NOT pick up the difference between words like Discreet and Discrete.
But fear not…
