The word sorry is surrounding everywhere. Let’s have look towards you how many times you said sorry or apologize in one day? Do you say sorry whenever you start speaking at the same time someone else starts speaking?
You are unable to realize the situation as saying sorry every place doesn’t suit your personality especially when you are working in the office as it shows your personality traits and saying sorry for every situation will don’t put a good image in another person mind.
It might be the part or habit of saying sorry but you still need to control the situation and choose the alternate words in the critical condition to put a positive image in another person mind.
Let’s have look towards the situations and conditions where you should need to avoid the sorry and use the alternate substitute word.
- If you are late for the meeting:
Whenever a meeting starts and you are late for reaching the room then you don’t need to say sorry or I have work or I am busy – you just need to add the words like ‘Thanks for your patience, I know your time is valuable – let’s dive in it’.
- To interrupt:
Whenever you are at office and the situation raise where you start talking and another co-worker start talking you doesn’t need to say sorry in this situation as saying sorry will decrease your image and lower your status – the simple words you should choose such as ‘Excuse’ or you can use the words such as ‘Pardon Me’ or if your words are really important you can add ‘Do you mind handing that to me?’.
- When you don’t like the idea or something:
This situation often raise while you are at meeting and different employees are delivering their ideas or assigning the tasks to the employees, if you don’t like the idea or task or anything you don’t need to sorry but instead of sorry you should need to add the words such as ‘I appreciate your work but I don’t understand reasoning behind this logic’ another idea to deliver your words ‘I personally don’t care of this but here is idea to improve the situation’.
- To fill the air:
Whenever you are confused while presenting your words or nervous at delivering time you shouldn’t need to choose the words like um, uh, sorry as these words do not make any sense in front of co-workers, the simple idea is to remain silent whenever situation occurs and get the correct data and then deliver the message to the listeners.
- If someone asks you to clarify:
Whenever you are in the office and your worker asks you to clarify the words you have spoken yet, you don’t need to worry and don’t say sorry but instead of saying sorry deliver the words like ‘Let me clarify you’ instead of apologizing for the confusion.
- If you want to ask a question:
If you want to ask a question you don’t need to add words like I am sorry, can I ask a question just make it simple as you need to add words like ‘Here’s my question’?
