Never Say Whatever with Richard Moran



WHATEVER. When we use this word to answer a question, we aren't deciding or, we are passing the buck. Richard Moran believes that when we use the word Whatever we may feel helpless or lack control, and we surrender. Often, we have more control than we think. So, when we make decisions, both the big and the small ones that seem insignificant, we need to be intentional. The action we take follows the intent.

Key Points

  • Richard Moran shares his research on trends about the word Whatever and how it relates to decision-making. 
  • He discusses how Whatever can impact leadership by creating a culture of indifference.
