Boston Globe asked its readers for their least favorite "Workplace Jargon." Read it. It's a relief, particularly when you encounter the ones that make you cringe. Mine:
--"reach out," as in, "I just wanted to reach out to you," which triggers the shot back, "Please don't"
--"value-add," typically an early warning that none is to follow
--"touch base," puh-leez, and...
low hanging fruit, ramp up, boil the ocean, circle the wagons, and need I continue? Begs question: Are we thinking when we say these things? (Not me, of course, I'm too busy herding cats.)
