Below are some workplace jargons used by managers:
"Think outside the box" is a graphic way of asking people to consider other possibilities which is something any decent leader is going to be open too. It encourages creativity (with regards to their job description) among people not to limit their thinking. "high level overview" is a code for we don't know what we're talking about because we never did the low level job that actually makes the company function. (satire)
"action items" is a code for more check lists to do, adding to the many other action items that have been developed over the prior years.
"aggressive" is a code word for what we are doing isn't working, but by adding the word "aggressive" in front of it, then it sure makes it look like we're trying hard. (satire)
"conference call" is a code that may mean an organized waste of time where ten people fail to make a decision that one person should have made in a very short time. (satire)
"Work it out" is a code for hopefully someone else will do it. (satire)
"vetting" means the issue was thoroughly studied prior to being discussed. In reality it means the speaker didn't do a thing, but it sounds important.
