6 workplace communication mistakes to avoid

The management tip of the day:

  • speak soon at meeting. If you score one intervention in the first third, you are more likely to be seen as a contributor,
  • defensive statements cause you an apparent loss of confidence (“I may be wrong”, “I may forget something”),
  • tag lines (“ok?”, “do you agree?”) also cause you an apparent loss of confidence,
  • over-apologissing does it with credibility
  • moving a lot; it may seem like you are nervous and/or unprepared,
  • turning down praises
