On Cliches and Words

The Boston Globe recently had a Sunday Artilce about the overuse of Cliches in the workplace. Some of them were

'What are your core competencies'

Others may include 'Let's touch base tomorrow'. It gave suggestions on how these words have been used over and over that they have a negative effect on their 'victims'. The April issue of Toastmasters also carried an article on the use of Cliches to describe people and things. Here is the listing:
