It's important to understand that the words you use as a leader, even if with no ill intentions, can still produce a negative impact on your team. The issue comes as a result of you might not also be aware that you’re doing it.
Roar Ambition has highlighted the words and phrases you need to avoid:
“There is nothing I can do.”
This phrase comes across as defeatist and incredibly frustrating for those on the other end. It also insinuates that you as the problem solver are out of ideas. A good leader is never out of solutions or at least don’t show it. There are often many different avenues or ideas out there to try, and you just have to keep on searching. If you are frequently using this phrase as a leader, it is safe to expect your team to feel hopeless and pessimistic as a result.
“Never” and “always.”
When it comes to leading others, it's important to bear in mind that your subordinates are people, and people have good memories. By using absolute words and phrases can be dangerous, as they have the potential to come back and cause issues. The more outrageous the comment is, the more likely it is to be remembered.
“Does that/this make sense to everyone?”
A phrase like this might be innocent enough for the leader to ask, as they’re trying to gain clarity on if everyone is on the same page. However, it's insinuating to those listening that they just don't understand, it undermines their intellect if you talk down to someone particularly an employee its safe to expect resistance and problems to arise.
