Best in Class Power Phrases

hello my name is yesHow you speak, and the words and phrases you use, make a huge impact in the way you are perceived on the job, as well as in everyday life. For example, every time I hear someone say, “no problem,” I cringe. Why are you even bringing up the word problem? Instead, focus on the positive side of the phrase, by saying “you’re welcome,” “glad to help,” or “my pleasure.”

Here are some more positive phrases you might want to adopt, so that you are seen as a positive, can-do person.
