Avoid Clichés

Avoid using these 15 of the most annoying clichés in your workplace. Whenever I hear the ones in bold, I know someone is blowing hot air, filling space and has nothing to say:

At the end of the day
Solution
Thinking outside the box
Synergy
Paradigm
Metrics
Take it offline
Redeployed people
Core Competency
Win-win
Value-added
Get on the same page
Customer-centric
Generation X
Alignment

identified by the Accountemps survey of 150 senior executives
