Leave off the Actually

I hate the word actually. Recently I received a compliment from someone that left me feeling deflated. All because of an actually.

I believe the exact words were, “You actually did a good job on that project.” Translation …. “I’m surprised, because you usually don’t do that well.

Your team members want me to remind you … Leave off the Actually.

“You actually look nice today.” “That’s actually pretty good.” “You actually came through this time.”

Not cool!

If you want to be a better coach and motivator for your team, Leave off the Actually.



What are other ways leaders can deflate their team members?
