Communication Tip #25

Use those infinitives! They are more direct and grammatically correct than “on” and “and”.

Example:

  • Don’t say: “I’m planning on introducing the boss.”
  • Say: “I’m planning to introduce the boss.”
  • Don’t say: “The manager will try and contact the client.
  • Say: “The manager will try to contact the client.

The best sentence: “The manager will contact the client.” (Good managers don’t “try”, they “do.”)
