USEFUL TIPS FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS/MANAGERS
-The Fifteen Most Powerful Words-
Words are important. There are over one-half million of these in the English Language, but some are more important than others. Oddly enough, the most powerful words are not the words we use most often.
Texting, phone calls, one-on-one conversations, blog posts, comments on those blog posts, emails, social media posts, conference calls and video chats are good reasons to develop an extensive vocabulary.
Every one of those interactions features a language, specific words and word combinations that we hope will help to get us what we want and reduce the frequency of misunderstandings.
Consider using these 15 words to be a better leader, close more business and be a better friend.
The 15 most important words:
- 'I am proud of you.' 5
- 'What do you think?'4
- 'Will you please?' 3
- 'Thank you.' 2
- A person's name is the most powerful word you can ever use with him or her. 1= 15
