Let’s watch our language

Here are five habits of speech (link to: inc.com) we might want to get rid of, according to Geoffrey James.

  1. Holding speeches rather than conversations (what Geoffrey calls “speechifying”).
  2. Interrupting others.
  3. Talking behind someone’s back or speaking unfavourably about someone (what Geoffrey calls “badmouthing”).
  4. Using offensive terms or swearing.
  5. Bragging (what Geoffrey calls “horn-tooting”).
