posted by Brian Taylor -

We need to start thinking outside the box to come up with better stuff to say in meetings.

According to a new survey, 72% of us sometimes use annoying clich√©  phrases at work, even though we should know better.  And here are the  ones we say the most . . .

1.  Give 110%.

2.  Think outside the box.

3.  Hammer it out.

4.  Heavy lifting.

5.  Throw you under the bus.

6.  Don't count your chickens before they've hatched.

7.  Pushing the envelope.

8.  Let the cat out of the bag.

9.  Let's circle back.

10.  Win-win situation.

Some phrases that just missed the top 10 are:  Synergy . . . back to  the drawing board . . . paradigm shift . . . touch base . . . I'll loop  you in . . . and team player.
