LEE O'CARROLL COMMON LANGUAGE

Common Language

When we speak using a simple, common language, more people will listen to us and more people will understand us.

Using common language makes people feel more comfortable, more equal and more confident.

Using common language encourages people to speak up, to suggest things and to participate more.

Using common language in the workplace encourages people to be much more engaged, and to offer up suggestions that will be accepted based on what is said, not how it is said. Common language doesn’t judge. It reduces the ability for people to showboat, to appear superior in intellect based on the choice of words used.

CEOs / Management should introduce common language policies in the workplace to help promote greater inclusion, communication, improved efficiencies and a healthier workplace culture
