Jargon Monoxide: Clear the Air in Your Workplace!

šŸ“ˆ So many Metrics, So little Time. Smash through the Barrier!
Get the Deck and The CX Measurement system that works Immediately. šŸ‘

In the corporate world, a silent and insidious problem exists – jargon. ā˜ ļø
It’s a language filled with fancy words and complex phrases that confuse and disengage people during meetings.


Some common symptoms of “jargon monoxide” exposure include:-

šŸ™„ Eyes glazing over during presentations

šŸ˜µā€šŸ’« Sudden confusion about the meaning of words being used

šŸ˜µ An irresistible urge to play “buzzword bingo”

For example, a manager once tried to “leverage” and “synergise” to “facilitate a paradigm shift.” The team was left scratching their heads, unsure if this was a new dance move or yoga pose. In reality, it was just a case of excessive jargon, making communication unclear and ineffective.

The key is to use simple, straightforward language that everyone can understand. Avoid complex terminology and aim for a conversational tone. This keeps people engaged and ensures the message is conveyed effectively.

Letā€™s review a couple of examples and possible cures.

šŸŒ©ļø The Outbreak of Disruptive Innovation āš”

Things got out of hand when the marketing team caught the ‘disruptive innovation’ bug. Every idea was ‘disruptive,’ and every plan was ‘innovative.’ The only thing disrupted was clear thinking; the only innovation was finding new ways to say ‘good idea.’

šŸŽ The Epidemic of Low-Hanging Fruit šŸ

The sales team was next, seemingly obsessed with ‘low-hanging fruit.’ Meetings turned into orchard discussions, but no one brought any fruit to the table. The only thing low-hanging was the team’s patience.

Treatment and Prevention:

  • šŸ‘‰ Open a window. Fresh air helps.
  • šŸ«™ Introduce a ‘jargon jar.’ Offenders contribute to the coffee fund.
  • šŸ—£ļø Use plain language. It’s refreshing and, surprisingly, more efficient.
  • šŸ“Ø Communicate plainly and clearly. Straightforward speech is surprisingly refreshing and efficient.

Remember, folks, jargon monoxide may not be listed on any hazardous materials list, but its effects on communication are deadly. Keep it simple and clear, and save the jargon for Scrabble night. šŸ””

Unlock the Real Power of Collaboration and Creativity in CX Workshops

Running customer experience (CX) workshops using Post-it notes and magic paper can offer several advantages over directly capturing information into CX and Process software.

Engagement and Collaboration:

a. Post-it notes and wall displays encourage active participation. Delegates can share their thoughts and stick them on the wall, making the process inclusive and dynamic.

b. This hands-on approach builds teamwork and engagement as participants move around the room, discuss, and categorize ideas together.

Visualization and structure:

CEMMethod Team Visualization

a. Ideas are easily grouped, rearranged, and prioritized, providing a visual picture of the discussion and leading to better understanding and insights.

b. Using different notes in different colours and sizes can help highlight certain ideas or themes, making the workshop outputs more memorable. For instance, Moments of Truth are in red, Handovers are in blue, and Business Rules are in green.

Summary

This isn’t one size fits all. Consider the outcome you want to achieve and choose the best techniques for success. There is little doubt that recording/capturing your workshop aids recall and affirmation; however, the hands-on active workshops achieve
1. Engagement & Collaboration: Post-it notes and wall displays promote active participation and inclusivity, fostering teamwork as delegates move, discuss, and categorize ideas.
2. Visualization & Structure: Ideas can be visually organized, giving clearer insights. Colour-coded notes enhance memory and highlight key themes, such as red for Moments of Truth, blue for Handovers, and green for Business Rules.

The discussion reviews the state of play and trends

Teaser preluding the podcast with host Ran Yousef of Glassix

ACCESS THE FULL INTERVIEW AND INSIGHTS (with Transcript) from these links:

The 90-second preview transcript provides a nice taster for the main course

Prelude to the main podcast

Now, as you already mentioned there, Ran, at the end of the day, everything comes back to customer experience. It’s the customer who creates all the work for our organizations. So it makes sense that we should be focusing our attention on how do we deliver successful customer outcomes. So in the context of generative AI, that puts our whole CX world on steroids, if you like, because many of the things that we’ve been saying for the last 15 or 20 years are now able to come to fruition in double quick time.

So with those sort of things in mind, you know, setting the sort of the scene there, you know, we’ve got, we’ve got areas, I won’t dive into detail. I’m certainly not going to go technical today, but we’ve got the areas like personalization, you know, the ability to be able to understand that our customers at a singular level.

So whether we’re a B2C, a B2B, a government, a not for profit, a charity or whatever, getting a real intimate understanding of our customers and the data associated with that allows us to really [00:01:00] personalize a service and a product we can deliver. Likewise, there’s things that we can do which have always been like, you know, we quest for 24 7 service, don’t we?

We want to deliver that for our customers, but it could become inordinately expensive. But with generative AI now, we can offer that as a service where people can interact, you know, in, in multimodal models. So, you know, through the phone, through the web, you know, through their apps and anyway they want to have a consistent set of interactions and be able to capture that in a way that seamlessly can connect with customer successes.

ACCESS THE COMPLIMENTARY 4 WEEK PROGRAM INCLUDES THE DECKS (PDF), VIDEOS & TRANSCRIPTS

The PROGRAM includes a dozen Case Studies , a Discussion of the reasons why some organisations fall into the same traps over and over (and how to avoid them).

Here’s an extract:

Here’s just one example from last week of all times where Tesla, let’s put the name out there as a warning to others, has been, over the years, the top in Net Promoter Score performance, if you like, across their particular industry. And yet at the same time, their customers are experiencing increasing issues.

See the Reuters report on Tesla’s failings: “Tesla created a secret team to suppress thousands of driving range complaints”

Poorer customer service has mapped through the number of complaints that they were receiving. So how could it be that they were being so successful with N P S compared with the rest of the industry? While at the same time the number of complaints have been increasing. And last week it was noted that people were gaming the system.

if you pay people for doing dumb stuff,
they’ll get really smart at it.

Tesla not measuring up

They were doing this by attaching the NPS and Customer Satisfaction scores to bonus schemes. Hence, not surprisingly, the scores were going up, the scores were improving month on month, quarter on quarter and year on year, right? And as it says, if you pay people for doing dumb stuff, they’ll get really smart at it.

And that’s precisely part of Tesla’s problem. And this goes back, and this isn’t like one incident. This goes back six or seven years, and there are reports that you can get through the links later on. They laid off a whole bunch of staff in finance and marketing for actually gaming the system and being very selective about who they asked and who they surveyed to produce the right results.
