Here are five habits of speech (link to: inc.com) we might want to get rid of, according to Geoffrey James.
- Holding speeches rather than conversations (what Geoffrey calls “speechifying”).
- Interrupting others.
- Talking behind someone’s back or speaking unfavourably about someone (what Geoffrey calls “badmouthing”).
- Using offensive terms or swearing.
- Bragging (what Geoffrey calls “horn-tooting”).
