    Also why don’t we hear jargon like this thrown around in sports? And if we do what are some examples?

    it doesn't sound like jargon to you because you're used to it and you know what it means. maybe this is how corporate speak works for some people.

    Our new CEO presented at an all company meeting today. He specifically had a slide saying great companies are ones who can speak normal language and without corporate jargon to each other. I couldn’t believe what I heard.

    They all say this shit. Then they start level setting, circling back, thinking outside the box, running point, deep diving and looking at things from 30,000 feet.

    I think most of us have a person that we've worked with that basically personifies this thread.

    Mine is the AVP from my first real job. She was a nice lady but her vocabulary was at least half corporate jargon.

    Conf call just now:

    “We need to analyze this with weblogs and other data to understand why customers are doing this.”

    Me:

    “Why don’t we just reach out and ask them why?”

    Conf call:
