How have you talked to your superiors in the past (or present)? Mull over those words for a moment. If you ever said no problem to your boss, it may indeed be a problem.
When you ask someone to perform a task and they respond with, “No problem,” how do you feel? The fact of the matter is, it insinuates that it might have actually been a problem and they are just trying to ease your mind.
It has been argued that the phrase, “no problem,” is over used, too casual, and may leave any boss feeling like their employee is actually inconvenienced.
If you want to leave anyone in a professional setting feeling like you are capable and happy to help, try a more positive twist. A simple, “happy to help,” can go a long way.
Although harmless, just how annoying are those two words to you?
