We had a leader visit us many years ago in our Toronto office and he made the observation that Canadians use the colloquial words “truly, honestly and quite honestly” often!
“If what you say is true or you are honest, you don’t need to say the words! When you say “truly” it makes me think, you are not being truthful on a regular basis!”
Once it was pointed out, I started noticing it everywhere…and made sure I took it out of my vocabulary.
Trust is the foundation of everything we do.
