Verbal Statement Mistakes To Be Avoided!

We all have said things that people interpreted much differently than we thought they would. Verbal slip-ups often occur because we say things without knowledge of the subtle implications they carry. There are some (following) phrases / statements that emotionally intelligent people are careful to avoid in casual conversation:-:-

  • "You Look Tired": Instead of saying this, ask "Is everything OK?" Instead of assuming someone's disposition, just ask to enable him / her, open up and share.

  • "All The Best / Good Luck": This phrase implies that they need luck to succeed. It is a subtle one. It certainly is not at the end of the world if you wish someone good luck. Instead say, "I know you have what it takes" This is better than wishing others.

  • "You Always or You Never....": No one always or never does / can do anything. These phrases make people defensive and closed off to your message. Simply point out what the other person did that is a problem for you. Or you can say "It seems like you do this often".

  • "You Have Lost a Tone of Weight": This statement creates an impression that you are being critical. It also implies that he / she used to look fat or unattractive. Instead say, "You look fantastic".

  • "As I said Before": This phrase makes it sound as if you are insulted at having to repeat yourself which is hard on the recipient of your communication. It is better to avoid this type of statement.

  • "You Were Too Good for Her Anyway": When someone severs ties with a relationship of any type, personal or professional, this comment implies he has bad taste and made a poor choice in the first place.

  • If you are really struggling with procrastination, consider an internet blocker and shut off instant (unwanted & useless) alerts and notifications in your electronic devices.

  • You can set specific times to check your social media, emails and phone calls.

  • For a better night sleep, shut off all your electronic devices at least half an hour before you go to bed. A great use of this time is to read a book you like to get a sound and deep sleep.

  • Use your phone when you are alone and your mobile-phone & meal time definitely should not go together.

  • If possible, try to be phone-free for one full day each weekend. If difficult to follow with immediate effect, try to be phone-free an hour initially and gradually increase the number of hours.

Employers! Interview Questions To Be Avoided

Are you in Recruitment Department or a HR Manager or authorised to recruit for your company? Here are some questions you should never ask the candidates applying for job in your company:-

  • Are You Married?: There is no benefit to asking about marriage status during the hiring process as marriage has nothing to do with a person's career.

  • Your Religion?: With some exemptions (like recruiting for church or religious camps), there is no reason to ask about a person's belief system. Instead of asking directly, ask indirectly whether the candidate will be ready to work on the days / schedules required for the position.

  • Plan to become pregnant (if married)?: It is never appropriate to ask a woman candidate if she is planning to become pregnant as some women of a certain age are likely planning to have children.

  • Your Age?: Most candidates mention age / date of birth in their 'Resume' and some might not. Still it is not ideal to ask age. Smart hiring managers will come know the (approximate) age just by scanning through the educational qualifications, working experience etc.

  • Your Spouse Employed?: A spouse' employment / unemployment is no indicator of how capable the candidate is to perform the necessary duties. It is better to avoid asking this type of question.

  • You Smoke / Drink?: What a person does in spare time away from work is none of company's concern. Even your company follows 'non-smoking' environment, avoid this question before hiring.

  • Prefer Career or Family?: Question like this opens the employers up to claims of discrimination. Answering to this question by the candidate (by preferring either) will be contrary to each other (career and family).

  • Have Children?: If you know that the candidate is married (from the 'Resume), it is not ideal to ask about the children. If the company expects frequent travel by the candidate after selection, recruiters can directly ask whether the candidate (if selected) will be able to travel whenever required or work overtime on short notice.
