PROFESSIONALISM TIP #4 ~~~ WATCH YOUR WORDS!

 

PART  I

`

Utilizing appropriate grammar, and consistently practicing acceptable Business English is a great way to demonstrate your Professionalism!

Business environments are not normally the place for ‘street language’!

`

PART II

Swearing, cursing, or cussing—whatever you call it—has no place in most workplaces. Unless you KNOW,  without a shadow of a doubt, that it is okay in yours, refrain from using foul language, particularly if those who might  be offended are present.

Here’s a good  guide to follow:

If you wouldn’t say it to your grandmother, don’t say it at work.

`

PART III

`

Things put up on Social Media, seemingly LIVE FOREVER!   Once there, it doesn’t ever go ‘completely away’!!!

Additionally, things said in ‘print’, do not afford the reader the ability to hear any inflections in the speaking voice that could affect their interpretation of words that might well be possible if they were speaking directly to the recipient in a one-on-one situation.

`

PART IV

`

Be VERY CAREFUL when sending E-Mails and other ‘digital’ communications as well!

Virtually, everyone has heard of someone who hit ‘Reply ALL’ instead of the singular ‘Reply’.

`

RULE OF THUMB!

`

IF you would not want your communications on the FRONT PAGE of a National Newspaper, or said to your Mom or Grandmother…

…DON’T SAY IT….DON’T WRITE IT……DON’T FORWARD IT!
