Aiming for Career Advancement?

TalkShop career advancement tipsStrike out these words from your vocabulary!

Words reveal one’s disposition, attitude, and outlook. They can make or break one, particularly at the workplace. Words can open doors to opportunities. By the same token, they can bring one down.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO reiterates, “It is best to be careful about what one says. It is best to scrap these useless and negative words that convey a tentative, stubborn, unproductive nature that lend no value to any organization and will not help one move forward in his career:

1. “Um “, “ah,” “er”. They are fillers that suggest unfamiliarity and helplessness.

2. “Probably,“ ”I guess,” and “maybe” convey indecisiveness.

3. “No.” Replace with “I can learn it.”

4. “But.” It negates everything said earlier.

5. “Can’t,” “I will try.” These express unwillingness

6. “Really,” “seriously.” They waste time.

7. “And so on”, “etcetera,” “blah, blah,” “whatnot”. They don’t make sense.

8. “Like,” “You know,” “Well,” “I mean”. They are just fillers that show one is groping for what to say.

Viesca adds, “Be cautious. Use words that communicate the positive nature of a people-person that is valued in the workplace.
