137 CDP: Cliches, Slang & Fillers: How to Sound More Professional at Work

August 2, 2017


Eliminate certain words and sound more professional at work.

Sometimes, we don’t know what we sound like. Now, as a podcaster, I have the unfortunate experience of having to edit my shows, meaning I have to listen to myself ALL the time, and so I know very well that I say “you know” too much and that I have not yet eliminated the dreaded “ummmm”. However! There are often words and phrases and filler sounds that we use that take away from our speech…that cause us to sound less professional than we might want to.

I’m here to help.

In this podcast episode, I take much of the info from Chapter 6 of my book, “What They See: How to Stand Out and Shine in Your New Job.” In it I’ll take a look at tired old cliches that you can eliminate, slang words that make you sound less intelligent, less capable and less professional…even if none of that is actually true!

Jargon, Job Search and Joy!

Not sure about the joy part…I needed a “j” word for alliterative purposes.I will talk about jargon and filler sounds and how these can affect a job search too.

Join in and listen!

Share this episode, leave a comment, ask a question…I would be delighted to hear from you.

Until next time,
