I’m going to shock you a bit today. Why? Because I’m going to tell you it’s time to begin using adult language in your conversations.
That’s right. We need to step up our game and begin using adult language. It’s the way you’re going to move ahead in the world.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about profanity laced tirades, four-letter words, or depreciating language.
I’m talking about real adult language.
You can begin using adult language by speaking encouraging phrases. Tell others the great job they’re doing. Shower them with praise.
Here’s a few ways you can speak like an adult by encouraging others.
- I trust you

Next, begin implementing hopeful words. These words will raise others up and fill them with hope.
- You’ve got this
- I can’t wait to see you shine
- Your dream can come true
- You’ve got the potential to be a superstar
Last, lets impart words that will impact a person long after you’re gone. Shower them with words of affirmation.
- I appreciate you
- You’ve helped our company succeed
- There’s no one else like you
Speak Like An Adult
I’m sick and tired of hearing the workplace filled with profanity and disparaging remarks. Cursing and yelling are not signs of maturity. They actually show a lack of maturity.
Are you as tired of it as I am? If so, it’s time.
Begin using phrases that real adults use. Words that will lift others up. That will show them you care. That will give hope and expectation rather than death and defeat.
When you begin changing your speech habits, you’ll begin to see a change in your team.
Positivity will rise, productivity will rise, hope will rise.
Start speaking like an adult and you’ll see a better work environment. Isn’t this what you really want?
