Ep #151: Speaking Powerfully: 3 Words to Stop Using for Greater Clarity and Confidence

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | Speaking Powerfully: 3 Words to Stop Using for Greater Clarity and Confidence

Are you consciously choosing the words you say? How is the language you’re using sending the wrong message or undermining your confidence? What does it take to gain control of your speech patterns? And how can you communicate with greater clarity, confidence, authority, and power?


We’re at the very beginning of spring, which means it’s time for spring cleaning for many of us. Your mind might immediately turn to decluttering your physical space, whether that’s your house, office space, or wardrobe, and experiencing the satisfaction that comes from the visual effect of before-and-after. However, while less tangible, I’m inviting you to spring-clean your speech this week.


The language you use on a daily basis might seem innocuous, but there is profound power that comes from making subtle shifts. Join me in this episode to hear about three overused expressions that we use to our own detriment, and learn simple edits that will tidy up your speech and help you communicate with more clarity and confidence.
