I've been blogging recently on the power of language, focusing on the elegance and impact of certain types of words and sentence construction. One hundred and eighty degrees from this elegance are hackneyed cliches that don't communicate anything meaningful. I just came across this post at Harvard Business on 10 Business Words To Ban and I had to share it. I laughed out loud at some of the commentary from David Silverman.
All our business communication...including presentations...would definitely benefit if we eliminated these words. What other corporate-speak words do you think we should banish?
