Most Irritating Work Phrases

There is a time and place for buzz words and phrases, mostly in my opinion centered around key words for search engines.  When used in conversation, they just make people sound like they don't know what they are talking about but want to speak up.

Here is my list of "never use in conversation" phrases in no particular order.

  1. Drill down
  2. Low hanging fruit
  3. Playground or sandbox environment
  4. Think outside of the box
  5. Back to the drawing board
  6. C-Suite
  7. Value add
  8. Pick your brain
  9. Cash cow
  10. Give it 110%
  11. Team Player
  12. Cast a wide net
  13. Game changer
  14. Viral
  15. Transparent
