For forward-looking statements you don't want to guarantee, like the Friday deadline example above, Jerry Weissman, founder and president of Power Presentations Ltd., suggests replacing "think," "believe" and "feel" with what he calls "power conditionals," such as: "I'm confident/convinced/optimistic we'll meet that Friday deadline.
...
In Weissman's 2011 Harvard Business Review article, "Never Ask 'Does That Make Sense?'" he identifies the two negative implications of this question:
1. "Uncertainty on the part of the speaker about the accuracy or credibility of the content"
2. "Doubt about the ability of the audience to comprehend or appreciate the content"
If you want to check in on your listeners, Weissman advises instead asking, "Do you have any questions?"
"Like," "um," "actually," "pretty much" ... and pretty much any other filler word you can think of.
This includes "to be honest" and "honestly" - were you lying before? - as well as "sort of," "anyway," "kind of," "basically" and "really," Weissman says.
...
Phew. "Those filler words have crept into the conversation, because people are buying thinking time, and because they don't pause," Weissman says.

"Some HR person, some VP of HR or some CEO who's interviewing you? might just be a stickler," Weissman says.
