Let's run it up the flapgpole

Have you ever found yourself saying something in 'management speak' and cringing afterwards?

We've heard some real howlers in our time – and no doubt uttered a few ourselves – but what are your worst offenders? Perhaps it's taking an idea shower in the boardroom or cascading information down to your colleagues.

You might have heard them at desk causing you to think outside the box. Whatever the paradigm shift, I think that moving forward, we'd love to hear more office cliches from our readers.

Let's action it: tweet me your stock phrases @shippingjobs_
