Speaking Well of Others

Speaking well of others and sincere compliments can ring the cash drawer of your business. No matter how hard you try to encourage good communications in the work place there may remain a small minority of people who are inclined not to speak well of others. This is particularly hard when the subject of such conversation is you the boss.

Here are 7 bad habits that you should avoid in your personal and business life

1. Gossiping
If you engage in gossip, you can give yourself a bad reputation and inspire others to start gossiping about you.

2. Judging
If you fill your conversations with judgments of others, you’re making the person you’re speaking with self-conscious of being judged themselves.

3. Being negative
Choosing to be optimistic will make you more enjoyable to talk to. Plus, it’s better for your health.

4. Complaining
Complaining easily becomes a habit, and before you know it, you’ll be known as the person who complains about the weather, the news, work, and everything else.

5. Making excuses
Some people have a excuse collector a person they put the blame on! Putting the blame on anybody and anything except themselves will meet in failure. Own up and be truthful with everyone.

6. Exaggerating
Exaggeration “demeans our language,” Adding dramatic flair is essentially a form of lying, and “we don’t want to listen to people we know are lying to us.”

7. Being dogmatic
It’s dangerous when opinions and facts become confused. Nobody wants to be bombarded with opinions stated as if they were true.
