3 Ways To Make Words Work For You

Want to gain new friends or get on your boss's good side? Know what to say to get exactly what you want.

1. When meeting new people at a bar or in the workplace, you’d definitely want to be remembered. Come up with a few introductory sentences that highlight the most interesting and intriguing parts about yourself. Whether it’s your new job or what you do with your spare time, always keep your audience coming back for more.

2. If you need a recommendation or something as simple as having your monitor repaired, ask nicely and you’ll surely get what you want. Whether it’s your boss or the technician in your building, everyone appreciates well-picked words and a pleasant tone. Mind your speaking manners to get people to do things and earn their respect.

3. Corresponding with friends or colleagues over email? Be as precise as you can be. Choose words that cannot be misinterpreted—and skip the text speak. Say what you want to say with sentences that communicate a pleasant tone.
