If you want to sound professional and be perceived as a leader in the office then there are a few phrases you should cut from your vocabulary.
3 PHRASES TO CUT FORM YOUR WORK VOCABULARY:
- “No Problem”
- When someone thanks you for something the proper response is “You’re Welcome”.
- Though the phrase “No Problem” is meant to communicate the same it actually brings a negative connotation by implying that they could have been a problem.
- This may seem like it isn’t a big deal, but if you want to sound proper in the business world you’ll cut this phrase from your vocabulary.
- “I’ll Try”
- Imagine you delegated a task to a coworker and their response was “I’ll Try”. What is the first thing that comes to mind?
- It’s as if you are preparing for failure. Leaders in the office don’t “try” they get things done.
- Replace this phrase with the word and meaning of “will”.
- “I think…”
- Before you say the words “I think” don’t be afraid to admit you don’t know something.
- You can say something like “I don’t have that information right now, but I’ll find out and get back to you.”
- Saying “I think…” makes you sound unsure and not confident which are two things you don’t want to portray in the office.
