Why Are Filler Words A Problem?
Words are important. Like it or not the way we speak informs people’s opinions of us, their ability to hear our message and their ability to understand or comprehend what we have said. Whether you are doing a keynote address, a Zoom call, a team meeting or hosting a social gathering. Filler words have a tendency to distract listeners from what you are trying to say. It decreases intimacy, leads to listener fatigue and can in some cases lead to misinterpretation of your message. It does not mean you are not intelligent.
