How to help your colleagues get you

Is it hard to grab attention in work conversations?

Or do team members hear you, but they don’t seem to listen to you?

Perhaps it’s because you don’t sound like you belong.

All professions have their jargon.

In healthcare, you can hear: activities of daily living, comorbidity, LOS, tolerate, therapeutic benefit …

Business buzzwords include: bandwidth, customer journey, deep dive, drill down, touch point …

Using jargon correctly can help you connect with co-workers.

They’ll be more open to your ideas and opinions when you use the expressions they’re expecting to hear.

To get more engagement from your colleagues and superiors, sound like an insider rather than an outsider.
