The Language Patterns of Leaders

by Coach Kardan

For leaders and managers, language is crucial for making decisions, inspiring others, conveying a message, resolving arguments, measuring results, and sharing information.

The language of leadership has to be learned and constantly practiced.

Many of us have quite a broad vocabulary, but mostly rely on few core words. If you pay attention to your words, you will notice your language pattern.

Language is a crucial part of being a leader. The words and tone matter very much! The words that one uses in conversations with team members, peers or in a speech are a direct reflection of the individual’s leadership style.

Furthermore, be aware that language shapes our reality. So the question is, what do you want to cultivate with the words you use?

One way to start changing your mindset is by replacing certain negative words. For example, every time you want to use the word “difficult”, replace it by “challenging”.
Language can shape our motivation as well. Instead of saying “I have to do…”, replace it by phrases like “I want to..”, or “I would love to do…”, or “I am committed to…”.

Avoid the word “but”. This short three letter word can have quite a negative effect. For example saying “Your report is overall good but it is missing a few points” will be interpreted as “the report wasn’t good”. Instead, try replacing your “buts” with “and”. For example, “Your report is overall good and let’s just add a few things”.

Never underestimate the power of words!
