Please Stop Using These Words at Work

In the workplace, the words you choose to use—and you do choose your words—impact the way you’re understood and viewed. Using the wrong words can make you appear less confident or clear than you are, and can make your colleagues find you unnecessarily terse or critical. Selecting the right word is a lifelong practice, and while a quick brush-up on the dos and don'ts of language might only take a moment, the skills will last a lifetime. Take this refresher and make sure these words are stripped from your work vocabulary.
