Corporate Speak Bingo - Submissions Needed

Dear War Room,


I'm going to be putting together some Corporate Lingo Bingo Cards to make our next couple of All Hands meetings more entertaining. I'm looking for suggestions on what words need to be included.


So therefore go ahead and list your favorite corporate speak words and phrases. The shit you can't go more than 30 minutes without hearing at work but never hear it anywhere else. Think of things along the lines of "take this offline".


Please check to see if your suggestion has already been posted in the comments before adding it. If you see it give it an upvote and add to the comment chain, but try to keep it all in line. I don't want to be cleaning up after you all.


Bestest,

Me

I like how this one most of the time means "doing more than the bare minimum in my outreach" but it just sounds so much cooler to be multithreading

That will make it on the Sales Team All Hands bingo card but probably would be too low probability to put it on the company wide one.ย

2nd this, that's just weird in a few ways. It's sexual so that's already getting iffy on a customer facing call, but it just has this really leering vibe.ย

I am going to need to circle back on that, because at the end of the day we need to flesh out our KPIs internally, so send me some information. This was set up as a discovery call post BDR qualification.ย
