Chapter 10. Solving Problems Through Let... > Writing For Someone Else's Signature

Writing For Someone Else's Signature

As we noted in Chapter 3, one way that problems get solved in the professional world is for subordinates to write memos and letters for their managers to sign, so that subordinates become ghostwriters, in effect. This responsibility can demonstrate how well-suited a subordinate may be to make the move from salaried professional to manager. Such a demonstration would require that the professional show evidence not only of writing competence but also of problem-solving competence.

Considering the Audience

The difficulty about ghostwriting a memo or letter is that even though there may be only one addressee—no copies, blind or noted—the writer must always address at least two readers, the addressee and the signator. This is a matter of addressing audience correctly, and professionals will find this job easier to do, the better they know the signator.
