Today’s Innovation Challenge
The Swear Jar
Remember the old swear jars, you know when you had to pay if you said a bad word?
What common business terms would you like to fine? Maybe leverage, synergy, collaboration, cross-functional…
Now you think of a few more and try to avoid them. Come up with an alternative and see if it catches on.
One Up It: Bring your version of the swear jar to your next meeting, and a list of those banned words. Call out a team member for using one of these tired words and charge him/her a dollar. You can always give the money to charity or treat them all to a vending machine treat.
Share your banned words with @48Innovate use #swearjar #businesbingo.
