Robert S Montgomery

A useful list of positive words -- thanks! I guess "useful" is also a good positive word, and "positive" also can be useful. "Help" and "helpful" as well. Other words that come to mind from recommendations I've written are "profit' and 'profitable" and words related to clarity and coperation.

Lynn Gaertner-Johnston

Excellent contributions! Thank you, Robert.


Heidi Cole

I love your blog, but I have to share that I feel the word "transparency"'is one of he most overused of the past number of years. For me, it is so overused as to have lost most its impact! I literally cringe when I read it.

Lynn Gaertner-Johnston

Hi, Heidi. Interesting! I do not come across the word "transparency" in the business documents I read. Nevertheless, I do not want to make you cringe. I will remove the "transparency" example in a moment.

Thanks for letting me know.


Heidi Cole

Hi Lynn.

Thank you, but I do not wish to speak for the masses!
Perhaps it is a personal hot button. However I see and hear it so much that it seems to have lost it's impact of meaning, if that makes sense.

Your kind consideration is very much appreciated.


Lynn Gaertner-Johnston

Hi, Heidi. Since you are one of my readers, I want to do my best to avoid pressing your buttons!

Thanks for following up.
