Business clichés that need to be banished




We're all guilty of using the occasional buzzword or cliché at work. But it turns out that abusing these words and phrases can seriously hurt your credibility.

They're annoying and confusing — and often meaningless — and when you're communicating with busy people in the business world, they don't have the time to decipher your message.

Most clichés were once a fresh, creative way of expressing a popular thought or common idea. But because of excessive use, each phrase has lost its originality, impact, and even meaning.

Here is a list of 15 overused business expressions that should be put to rest once and for all.

How Oat Milk Could Change the Way You Drink Coffee 



Along with self-driving cars and a manned trip to Mars, one of modern society’s most pressing technological challenges has been developing tasty nondairy alternatives to milk. In the race to fill the nation’s cereal bowls and coffee mugs, almond milk has recently reigned supreme, but when the water-guzzling beverage (one almond requires about a gallon of water to grow) got linked to the California drought, the successor to soy milk fell from grace.

Then came Oatly, the maker of a faux milk made from oats. Oatly is a Swedish company that was founded 25 years ago by a food-science professor named Rickard Oste. He was doing academic research on the prevalence of lactose intolerance and wondered about starting from scratch: finding a source for milk other than cows. In Sweden, oats are a particularly abundant crop, so Oste developed a food-science technology that uses enzymes to liquefy oats into a rich milk in a way that still retained their digestion-boosting fibers. In the same way that cream may be added to milk to give it varying levels of fat, Oatly adds a plant-based canola oil to provide fat content.

Flying Cows. Floating Cows. How Qatar Gets Around Boycott


Qatar cows.jpg

The nine-month Saudi-led embargo of Qatar has an undisputed mascot for Doha’s defiance: the cud-chewing American cow.

Thousands of airlifted dairy cows landed in Qatar in the first months of the boycott that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt established against the country in June. Those nations severed diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar because of its alleged relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group that Saudi Arabia considers a terrorist organization.

The airborne bovines created a spectacle that highlighted the gas-rich sheikdom’s ability to overcome sanctions and provide fresh milk to its 2.7 million residents.
