Rethink Your Office Vocabulary
By Kristine Penning, AgCareers.com

Do you have a habit of saying a phrase or word over and over again? Or do you swear like a sailor? Small quirks in your vocabulary might make a totally different impression at work than at home or out with friends. Your workplace, whether it’s in an office or on the farm, is your place of profession, so your vocabulary should be just as professional. If you find yourself guilty of any of the following, you may want to rethink your office vocabulary.

Literally (or totally): I’m guilty of using the word “definitely” a lot, which I have just now caught on to be kind of annoying. The same goes for “literally” and “totally.” Usually, these words are just fillers (more on those later) that are used to add emphasis to a story you’re telling. They’re not necessary and can get really repetitive. Find some more interesting words to tell your stories.

Swearing: If I’m around fellow professionals that drop even one expletive in an even remotely professional setting, I immediately think less of them. They’re extremely unprofessional and rude for one thing, but for another, they make you sound stupid. Trash talk has no place at a meeting or a business lunch. Save it for drinks after work with a close colleague if you absolutely must.

Filler words: Yes, the occasional “um,” “uh,” “so,” or “like” may be unavoidable, but your colleagues and new acquaintances will notice their overuse.
