Hold the "New Paradigm" To Advance Your Career
"A new paradigm." "A 30,000 foot view." We often borrow clichés from military, political, or sports circles to express ourselves. While colorful at first, these expressions soon become trite and meaningless. Some clichés even convey the opposite of what you intended. To be an effective communicator, replace trite expressions with more precise, more meaningful, and less hackneyed language.
Here is how your audience interprets ten common clichés.
What Do Ten Common Cliché's Actually Convey?
What's Wrong with Clichés? Clichés are trite and imprecise, not hip. They signify an unimaginative, unimportant comment from people who don't know what they want to say. They are a convenient way to hide behind words. Consider how your audience will interpret your words.
Replace clichés with language that is more original and more direct. People judge you by what you say and do.
Crisp, clear language is a true differentiator in the business world.
