Sometimes, we don't know what we sound like. Now, as a podcaster, I have the unfortunate experience of having to edit my shows, meaning I have to listen to myself ALL the time, and so I know very well that I say "you know" too much and that I have not yet eliminated the dreaded "ummmm". However! There are often words and phrases and filler sounds that we use that take away from our speech...that cause us to sound less professional than we might want to.
In this podcast episode, I take much of the info from Chapter 6 of my book, "What They See: How to Stand Out and Shine in Your New Job." In it I'll take a look at tired old cliches that you can eliminate, slang words that make you sound less intelligent, less capable and less professional...even if none of that is actually true!
