Drop 10 words from your vocabulary


These oral mistakes can give you credibility and impact, so fix them, if you want people to take you seriously

Researchers believe that the first spoken language was Maya, which was about 7,000 years ago. Imagine, in the 70’s, we have made progress, “… and I really liked it?”

Whether you are leading a team meeting, presenting a potential customer or giving a keynote to the global audience, your credibility with oral mistakes will be reduced and your message will get distracted.

If you want honesty and effectiveness, consider skipping these phrases:

1. “I’m confused,” or “I do not get it.”

Instead of putting all responsibility to the other person, take co-ownership. Say, “help me understand your situation” and to stay open.

2. “You know what I mean?” And “Does this make sense?”

Ask for continuous verification chips on your order

3. “I was like …” or “he was like …”

The word “like” is an informal setup that is in the way of your clarity and reliability.

4. “Um, ah, uh, you know.”

Look for excessive use of supplementary words and stop exercises to oppose disorder.

5. “I’m too busy” or “I started writing an email and forgot to send it.”

Say excuses are unethical, “I apologize for the inconvenience you will take until tomorrow.”

6. “Out-of-the-Box”

… we should be retired, we can not escape from all the bzwwar sentences, but like people have become boring

7. “You always …”

Understanding of general generalization reduces and gets in the way of healthy communication. Be specific and avoid using unclear defect strategy

8. “I think we should do it this way.”

In the form of a confident communicator, the temporary language was given water in its presence. Make a solid recommendation and make it yourself

9. “I hate to say this, but …” and “John is a good person, but …”

Do not try to hide criticism with a layer of care or say that provide zero value.

10. “Really?”

This is a completely complaining that sounds like crying. Try an interesting overview instead

If you want more reliability and effectiveness, be it, as you know, more deliberately in your communication. Replace negative tone and slim term with positive tone and authentic appreciation words is an opportunity to inspire greatness in each new day, so say something real.
