Do you have one language for the business arena and one for when you are being 'YOU'?
Verbosity can be tiresome and pomposity is in equal measure eccentric (neutral) and off putting. Yet for some it still has an authentic aura. I'm thinking of a few well known British politicians.
Mimic them at your peril! A few words and expressions that grate on my nerves are the following. Any sentence beginning with 'rest assured...', 'trust me....', a description of anything other than a suit as 'bespoke'.
Note, this is reflective of my bias not an inherent flaw in the word choice. Words matter. They convey more than their literal definitions, and can betray us when we're playing a role that is at odds with who we are.
A final word that I believe has little use in assertive communication is 'just'. A simple word that we all use and yet subtly conveys a lack of conviction. "I just want to take a second of your time" "I just want to make a point'. Just indicates 'I'm not worthy' (Reference Wayne's World)
When we state our case authentically we express conviction, belief, passion without ambiguity and without hedging against potential criticism.
Just my opinion (yep intentional irony!)
