Microspeak: Assorted babble

Raymond Chen

Here are some phrases I jotted down during a meeting. I don’t even know what meeting it was. (They were jotted on some scratch paper.) These don’t count so much as Microspeak as they do just assorted management babble.

  • “inspiring sustained high performance”
  • “fostering agility and resilience”
  • “clarifying the journey”
  • “unleashing talent”
  • “a new or unanticipated experiment”

Sometimes I wish management would speak in plain English. But then the rest of us might realize that they don’t know what they’re talking about.
