#365 How to let go of ladder like language

The words we use at work affect the quality of our career conversations and the way we approach our development. When we use 'ladder-like' language, we limit people's potential. Making some simple 'squiggly swaps' opens up conversations and creates more opportunity for people. This week, Helen and Sarah talk about 5 common examples of ladder-like language and what a squiggly word swap might sound like. They also share coaching questions to make it easy to use squiggly language when you're thinking about your own development or supporting other people with theirs.
