Professionally Clueless?

Full Of Bull?
Full Of Bull?

You hear it on the streets everyday. And in the workplace hallways and break rooms. You hear it in the daily commute. It’s everywhere. It’s pessimistic. It’s pathetic.

But it brings people joy, I think, to wallow in their misery.

Leaders are struggling, everywhere you look. And this has the ripple effect on the people they lead, and it becomes this vicious cycle. So everyone tries to work harder, but people are so confused, they don’t even know where they are heading anymore.

I recently overheard an apparent leader talk about Twitter, Blogs, You Tube and other social media tools, like they understood it.

Has it gotten so bad in the struggle to survive, that many smart, dedicated people are now becoming professionally clueless?

  1. Uh oh. Sounds like my pet peeve (Buzz words) has visited jungle jeff.

    Sorry. Remember, pet peeves are like stray cats. If you feed them they move in and never leave. And they probably have fleas.

  2. Didn’t realize buzz words are your pet peeve. In fact, didn’t even know you had any pet peeves.

    Which buzz words? The social media ones or the leadership ones? Or something else?

    Thanks agin for visiting. Frequent your place too:

  3. Any buzz word. According to Webster that would be “an important-sounding usually technical word or phrase often of little meaning used chiefly to impress laymen”

    I would add “used by people who don’t know what they mean in a vain attempt to make themselves sound well-informed.” Drives me nuts.

  4. Thanks for the clarification on “buzz word”. Think I got it now. It’s amazing what you can hear when you listen. 🙂
