Do you know what's the most dangerous word at work?
One that can cause chaos and crazy stress?
I have worked with thousands of people in the corporate world.
And, hundreds of corporate professionals in my 1:1 coaching and courses.
When we drill down to the root cause of every workplace drama...
The culprit is usually the natural habit of saying "okay" to everything.
Or jumping to conclusions and assuming that things are "okay".
Here's why it's a bad idea:
Saying "okay" without understanding creates confusion.
Saying "okay" without clarifying creates misunderstanding.
Saying "okay" without aligning expectations create disagreement.
Snowball effect ensues.
This exact thing happened to my course's student until I pointed out to her:
"Hey, did you notice you have this habit of saying okay to everything?"
Sometimes, the smallest word can make the biggest impact.
So Mei, how many times have you said "okay" today? :)
