Awesome people Powerful language is something we should all work on as it might be good and it can come off as it being too strong. When we use powerless language it’s what we use in our daily basis being friendly and sociable we do it everyday at school so we’re all pretty much used to powerless language. I believe that when we do use powerful language it’s like when we listen to music that has words that you feel it deep in your heart because you relate to it. Using stronger words either to make a point or letting what you want to say be heard and it’s important for us to use it when need it . To speak up when we need to say something that you honestly believe in. Sometimes when we use powerless language it can affect our way of communication with our peers or audience .

American Express is a great place to work. I enjoy working with my colleagues and there is a growth mindset that is infectious. However, since it is a meritocracy, things can get quite competitive. Pay and benefits are good.
American Express has quite a bit of red tape due to its size but management is working to be more agile.
The benefits given to employees at Amex are the best I've seen since I've been in the work force. They don't surprise you with changes, they always give notice in advance and train employees to understand the changes effectively. American Express also sends their workers to different locations to train new hires and to learn from different managers for more techniques to use while speaking to customers.
