There is no other way to say it. When I hear people talk about competencies, monetization, upskilling, and feedback loops , I’m ready to leave the room.
Why has the language of business become so inhuman?
Humans do the work. Humans are the assets that companies ostensibly are proud of, but the language of business is right out of the military and machinery.
I hate the word alignment. Today, I was thinking how inappropriate it is. It sounds like something you do with a car or a platoon. “We’re in alignment”, I hear people say.
I prefer to say, “we’re on the same wave”. I know, it sounds so abstract, so soft and mushy.
I hope you too find people who are on the same wave-whether they be at work or at home, on vacation or at the gym.
Just don’t insult any of them and say you are “in alignment.” Or call them a vendor.
