BUSINESS BRIEFS


5 ways you might be undermining your authority
Entrepreneur
Sometimes the little things can make a big difference. For example, people who frequently use personal pronouns like "I" and "me" in small group interactions may be more viewed as more insecure than people who use more inclusive pronouns like "we" and "us," according to a new report published in the Journal of Language and Social Psychology.
