ABOUT THE WRITER
FYI, I am selling (and giving away) my latest work.
Did you know that I have been producing The Recruiting Life comic strip since 2006? I recently collected my favorite comics from over the years into a collected work – The Recruiting Life (Volume 1). The digital version is free, but the printed version will cost you a few bucks, so up to you. Either way, I would appreciate any and all support! So please, click the Facebook “like” button above this post and/or download and share the digital version of my comic with the Recruiters and/or HR professionals in your network. Cool? Cool.

Thanks in advance (again) for your support!
If you are like me, then you hate long, unproductive meetings. (If we are accomplishing things, its okay, I just detest the opposite.) One thing to counteract a waste of time is to just have fun with the situation. Have you ever heard of the business cliche’ game? That’s when you make a list of business cliches and you give yourself points when they are spoken during the meeting. Here are a few worth considering:
* Out of the box
* shareholder value
* Thinking outside of the box
* win-win situation
* paradigm shift
* at the end of the day
* 800 pound gorilla in the room
* low hanging fruit
* push the envelope
See what I mean? You can find many more business cliches here.
If you want to be really inventive, place some of these terms on a bingo sheet or make a tic-tac-toe board on a piece of paper. It will go a looong way towards relieving your boredom and counteracting any stress your job may be giving you at the time.
Have fun at your next staff meeting!
