Want To Be Respected? Then Stop Using these 50 Phrases

Want To Be Respected? Then Stop Using these 50 Phrases | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

When you're a boss, you sometimes talk a lot.

The problem might be, though, that you talk a lot of gibberish.

This can annoy your staff to the point at which they think you're not worth listening to. Which might just affect your ambitions.

Here, then, is a new survey in which  British employees declared their 50 most annoying phrases that come out of bosses' mouths.

It was commissioned by SPANA, an organization that offers free veterinary care for animals in developing countries.

As we first run down the list of the worst 10, please spend your day monitoring how many of these phrases you use. Then repent.

A New survey asks employees which pieces of business speak they hate most. There are a lot.

This is surprising, we all use the words, cliches in fact: thinking out of the box, touch base, going forward, heads up, its on my radar, and even game changer! And we think these words are cool! The truth is that these words cosntitute what is called 'gibberish'. It is surprising that using such high sounding terms might annoy staff into thinking that their boss is not worth listening to! Well if a large number of British employees wrote these words and expressions in their list of fifty most annoying phrases used by their bosses, then there must be some truth in this!

Even people in business are annoyed at these. Why can't anyone stop using them?

"As Zombie Fighters we can't be afraid to have honest conversations with our colleagues who are stuck.  Like my friend and colleague Jennifer Northrup said in a recent post on her blog, there's no need to be confrontational or to go on the attack.  However, we can't be passive either and hope that Zombie Librarians will simply be inspired by our stellar examples."

Allerlei bezuinigingen in het bibliotheekwerk kunnen ervoor zorgen dat de informatiewerker zich helemaal terugtrekt in zijn/haar schulp, vergelijkbaar met een zombieachtig leven. De Amerikaanse Zombie Fighters geven een aantal waardevolle tips, oa blijf leren en jezelf vernieuwen.
