Are there any guys out there who always have no clue what your office workers are saying when they start talking about the latest sports news, hot girls, sports cars and all the other things you could care less about? Well, worry not, because you’re not alone! There are so many guys out there who are just like you. Of course, you might not care about things like sports but having a good relationship with your fellow workers is very important. You have to be flexible in your language use so learning to talk “dude” is essential.
Lucky for you, there is now the Dudes-n-Bros Talking Points system! This is your one quick stop to all the “dude” knowledge you need to know in order to communicate effectively with your colleagues. If you don’t know what this system is all about, the video below will tell you all about it.
With the Dudes-n-Bros Talking Points system, your work life will never be the same again! Not only will you be able to understand what your fellow dudes and bros are talking about, you can actually contribute to the conversation too! Can you feel the worry about your lack of “dude-ness” going away?
Now, this might not be as easy as it seems. It’s not enough to just know about the latest “dude” news. In order to communicate effectively with your colleagues, you have to be person-centered. In other words, you should “adapt to the specific, unique, individuals with whom (you) interact”. For example, there might be a guy in your office who is totally into football. Therefore, you “adapt” by talking to him about the latest football news. And make sure you use the proper football expressions or terms when talking to him because it will make you seem that much more believable as a football fan. Same goes to your boss who might have an interest in sports cars. Learning the right terminology related to cars will definitely let you communicate more effectively with him.
Of course, there might be some of you who think that learning to talk “dude” is completely unnecessary and pointless, and I agree. Why should you pretend to be interested in all these things just to show your colleagues that you’re “normal” like them? But truth is, being flexible in your language use “can often make a crucial difference to (your) communicative success”. Making the effort to relate to the interests of your workmates is the first step in building a good relationship with them. They will have a better impression of you and suddenly your work life doesn’t seem all that bad.
