Enhancing Your EQ – Verbal Competencies

Do you ever find yourself searching for just the right word, either when writing an email or explaining verbally how you feel about an issue?  If so, you can enhance your verbal competency by expanding your vocabulary.  The Thesaurus can be your new best friend in this quest.  In many word processing programs, a Thesaurus is included in the Tools section of the menu.  Take a minute when you’re composing to look up words that are the best fit for your intended meaning.  If you’re about to make a presentation, whether it’s for a conference or an internal staff meeting, pull out a hard copy of a Thesaurus and check for similar words to those you’re considering that aren’t “just right”.
