How to Stop Using A Crutch Word

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

When I did my Winning Workshop Secrets: How To Grow Your Business With Live Events teleseminar series in July, Felicia Slattery was one of my speakers.  She  is a communication consultant, speaker, and coach and specializes in training busy professionals to succeed by communicating effectively with clients and prospects and the creator of Signature Speech Secrets.  She shared some great information about how to develop and deliver the content for your workshop.

In this video, Felicia talks about how to stop using crutch words in your presentations.  And if you are doing workshops, you know how important that is.

I know I have my crutch word. It is “now”. I like to begin all my sentences with it. But “now” I know about it and I can work on not using it anymore. What is yours? Please share in the comments…

  1. Hi,
    My crutch word- is inserting “you know”. I know…a really bad habit- I have been working to correct it. Awareness is key:) Great blog- thanks for sharing.
