What words do you use ALOT...

Many of us think, with good reason, that Steve Jobs of Apple Computer is a pretty good speaker....

... but this video (click here) shows that even the best of us have certain phrases that we "lean on" quite a bit.

For your next speech, ask your evaluator if you are using a phrase unconsciously that should be eliminated such as "ya know" or "...Anyways..." [for transitions between subjects].

Or, can you work a catchphrase into your speech to build on a central theme? Sort of like... "You must be a Redneck ..." [Comedian Jeff Foxworthy] or "Git R Done" [Comedian, Larry the Cable Guy].

What words are you using?
