How to Talk Business
Like a Boss

When I started my first corporate job over 15 fifteen years ago, I quickly noticed a strange phenomenon. The managers and leaders all spoke a strange new language. Mind you, it was still English, but it was a special subset of English. Whatever it was, I didn’t speak it, and they did.

 

I would learn over the years that fluency in corporate jargon was pivotal to business success. But talking business is much more than learning corporate buzzwords. Do you aspire to move up the corporate food chain? You’ll have to learn to speak like the big dogs. How to speak like a leader becomes more important the higher you climb. You won’t be considered for a leadership role unless you look, act, and sound like a leader first.

 

If you want to be a great manager or leader in your field, if you want to influence those around you, if you want to persuade others to follow your ideas, if you want to present your case in a more engaging way, and if you want others to respect you, you must learn to talk the language of business. Learn how to talk business like a boss.
