This article from Inc. Magazine’s website hits so many of my hot buttons when it comes to communication that I just had to share. I hear almost all 8 of them on a weekly basis, and they make my skin crawl!

My ears are especially sensitive to numbers 4 and 5.
Are you guilty of any of these credibility killing speech habits?
