Survey Reveals Most Annoying Buzzwords, Terms and Phrases in the Workplace

Here's the article from Marketing Today about business buzzwords gone bad.

Some of my favorites from the list were:

  • "At the end of the day"
  • "Solution"
  • "Thinking outside the box"
  • "Value-added"
  • "Get on the same page"
Some annoying phrases I'd like to ADD to the list would be:

  • "Not just THRIVING but SURVIVING"
  • "Peace of mind"
  • "Movers and Shakers"
  • "It's not a problem, it's an opportunity"
Also, play a game of Buzzword Bingo @ - this is hilarious!


What annoying business buzzwords are on your list?
