‘You may remember the old playground adage in grade school: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Unfortunately, says Darlene Price, “this saying does not apply in the workplace.”
Price, president of Well Said, Inc., and author of “Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results,” says words, poorly and unconsciously chosen, can indeed harm your credibility, relationships, and opportunities for career advancement.’
Could this apply to your time in school too?
