Why You Should Not Follow LinkedIn’s Chat Suggestion “No Problem” (And What To Say Instead)

“No problem”.

The image above is from a LinkedIn chat and those blue phrases are LinkedIn’s suggestions as to what I could reply to my friend’s comment.

Now, here’s my problem with LinkedIn’s suggestion…

First of all, I understand that this is often something that we say without thinking too much about it but…

WHY would we ever want to combine 2 negative words on a short sentence?

Please notice that when I say “negative”,  I am talking about the immediate unconscious emotional trigger that some words have in our minds.

Think about a time that someone said “NO” to you. How did you feel in that moment?

Think about a “PROBLEM” in your life right now. How does that make you feel?

So how can we turn this around?


Here’s some of the things that you can say instead of “no problem”:

  • “My pleasure!”
  • “Happy to help!”
  • “Totally fine!”
  • “100%!”
  • “I’m with you!”
  • “I agree!”
  • “I understand!”
