  • Are you clocking real mileage in the two CC’s or feeling too stressurised?

    Like to impress your boss with the latest business street talk? A list of confusing business jargon terms has been compiled by secretarial recruiter Office Angels, as follows:
    1.   The two CC’s (credit crunch and current climate)
    2.   Clocking real mileage (a really strong idea)
    3.   A high altitude view (taking a step back)
    4.   Reaching the blue ocean of success (reaching a goal)
    5.   Get a helicopter view by turning 360° and then circling back to your colleagues (again, taking a step back)
    6.   Let’s run that idea up the flag pole and see if it flies (try out an idea)
    7.   Picking the low-lying fruit (an oldie but back on the list this year – meaning a quick win)
    8.   Down to that level of granularity (meaning detail to you and I)
    9.   Let’s touch base about that offline (have a chat face-to-face)
    10. Feeling stressurised (under pressure and stress)
    11. Strategic staircase (a plan for the future)
    12. Better not let the grass grow too long on this one (act quickly)
    Recruiterblog says try and work these into your next office meeting. But do communicate clearly if you really want to produce results.
