What are three common verbal expressions that
diminish what you are saying?


Using “kind of” when making a request or voicing an opinion – removes conviction and authority
example: Would you kind of move to the right side of the room.
Using ‘right’ when you are explaining.
example: ‘When this happens, we know that happens, right?”
If you are asking for confirmation, why not just ask “Is it true, when this happens that happens?”
‘Right’ is better
used when you are listening to acknowledge you understand what the person said.
Raising your voice at the end of statements.
This changes your statement into a question, often this is unconscious.
I suggest you record and listen to yourself as this is big!
