Thought of the Day: language at work

Org speak in most companies is pretty vulgar and usually highly exchangeable among them. That is why the Dilbert cartoons work so well. The words are quite the same everywhere. The language is rather bloated, pompous and impersonal, and full of cliché. Words that have become fashionable in the last couple of years are no better than the old ones, either. Take the ridiculous purpose, culture, values, why, mindset, mindfulness or (gasp!) comfort zone.
