6 PHRASES YOU SHOULD NEVER USE AT THE OFFICE


The corporate world is increasingly sieving out every form of ethical informality. 

Listed below are my top six suggestions for the “DO NOT SAY” list. Using these comments in business (and life) can diminish your stature in the eyes of others, minimize what you are saying, or tarnish your professional image:

Ø  Can I ask a question?
You don’t have to ask permission; just ask the question.

Ø  I’m sorry to bother you.
Why are you a bother? You can say, “Excuse me. Do you have a moment?”

Ø  I was hoping that you could spare a few moments.
Same as above. Simply say, “Excuse me. Do you have a moment?”

Ø  ·Thank you for listening to me.
At the end of a presentation, you should say, “Thank you.” This lets the audience know that the presentation is over. You don’t have to thank people for listening to you. Aren’t your comments and opinions worthwhile?

Ø  I will be honest with you.
Aren’t you always honest? You don’t need to use this phrase.

I was just wondering if perhaps.
This phrase is a passive way of asking a question or backing into a statement. You can eliminate “I was just wondering if perhaps” and simply ask a question or make a statement. Instead of “I was just wondering if perhaps there will be enough computers for the project?” you can say, “Will there be enough computers for the project?”

Wow, those phrases are actually a statement made as a result of fear, inferiority complex and lack of self confidence. Thanks for helping to boost my self esteem.
