BREAKING: Positive words increase productivity

When it comes to stating the obvious, you can always rely on the old UAE PR machine to always serve up something redundantly amusing. This one takes the cake.

As a journalist you walk a tight rope trying to strike a balance between getting your reader’s interest and getting in all the facts. If you are too selective about only writing the  juicy bits of a story, you run the risk of being misleading. On the other hand, word limits and space constraints do not allow for a dialectic worthy of academic discourse. At the end of the day, you just attempt both and hope you have piqued interest responsibly.

But every now and then there comes that perfect story that is just too damn ripe for the picking. You don’t know where to begin, what to chose (it is all too good), how to frame it-you just think it best to leave it unedited for the reader to enjoy.

In manner of Tina Fey choosing to replicate Sarah Palin’s speech verbatim, we present to you the unedited press release we received with words of wisdom from Carol Talbot, a Master Trainer in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) verbatim:

 Positive Words Increase Productivity

Language Transforms Thinking And Ignites Energy

Dubai: Positive words increase productivity in the workplace and in life, according to UAE-based learning consultant, Carol Talbot.

Positive Words Increase Productivity

Language Transforms Thinking And Ignites Energy

Dubai, UAE September 2012: Positive words increase productivity in the workplace and in life, according to UAE-based learning consultant, Carol Talbot.

She acknowledged that the use of positive language can transform people’s thinking at the deepest level and that your ability to use language could be correlated with your level of success.

“With around 615,000 words in the English language at our disposal we probably only use 3,000 on a regular basis. A study of CEOs of multi-national organisations highlighted their ability to use more words to motivate and inspire their teams.”

“When people are disengaged, they sap and drain the energy of others, including clients and customers. To increase productivity it is essential to ignite a positive energy,” Talbot said”

And the No Shit Sherlock award goes to… Hey, I am no master trainer in neuro-linguistic programming but I cracked the power of positive words at the dear age of five.  Don’t get me wrong, there is infinite wisdom in Talbot’s words. Positive words and a culture of encouragement can work wonders for an employee’s morale-something most managers are aware of but often chose to ignore.  I am also certain Talbot has far more valuable insights to give, but the choice of angle for this story leaves a lot to be desired and surely does her experience or qualifications little justice.
