Illustration: Uttam Ghosh/

We all want to be perceived as good leaders at work, don't we!

There is no formula to be a successful leader, and shortcuts don't always prove to be helpful. 

However, you can sound more in control of things at work by using these phrases that would demonstrate your leadership skills.  

1. We need all hands on deck

2. Let's give this our 110 per cent

3. Let's not reinvent the wheel

4. This is where the rubber meets the road

5. You need to walk and chew gum

6. Let's not piss in the wind

7. I need a drop-dead date

8. We need a paradigm shift

9. Let's not put lipstick on a pig

10. We got to walk the talk
