I attended an HR conference last month where I heard some of the savviest business speak ever. Speakers from all over the globe discussed “leveraging,” “ROI,” “streamlining,” “interfacing,” “synergy,” and “big data” more eloquently than ever imagined. I’ll be honest though. By the time I got to the fifth speaker, I was snoring because my head could not make anything palatable out of this jargon salad. Everywhere I looked someone was tossing business-speak land mines as if they were trying to make my head explode.
