Remove “I Think”

Do you often use the phrase, “I think”?

According to best-selling author, Andy Bounds, if we want to be seen as an authority or as an expert, particularly when communicating with someone important, we should remove it.

Can you hear the difference between the following two sentences?:

“I think there are four steps to coaching …”
“There are four steps to coaching …”

Let’s go and take a look at our messages and listen to our recordings. And try to remember, in future, to avoid “I think”, where we want to be seen as an expert in our industry.
