Corporate Phrases That Kill Kittens

In Podcasts by David Specht0 Comments

Some corporate phrases need to be retired. Thanks to a article Mollie shared from Business Insider, the trio has a little fun, and a lot of commentary about 20 of the “worst offenders.”) After all, can’t we just say what we mean without all the cliche’s?

David, Sean and Mollie also admit to using some of these far too frequently, raising the ire of the other hosts.

So grab a Monster Drink and a Thesaurus. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
