An organisation may well write in its annual report that it is passionate about customer service but unless that translates everyday into people and processes all aligned in the pursuit of excellence then the words mean nothing.

Are you a motivated, passionate, creative and driven organisational expert who is not only responsible but also has extensive experience and a good track record in strategic thinking?  If so then you encapsulate the ten most overused buzzword phrases used in LinkedIn profiles.  With Wednesday 21st January apparently being the busiest day of the year for career development revisions, LinkedIn have taken the opportunity to suggest some ways in which individuals can stand out from the crowd.

That these buzzwords and phrases are seen as meaningless and overused tells us a lot about the way in which seemingly positive words can be view in a negative light if they are not backed up by actions.  When organisations look to boost employee engagement they would love to have employees who are motivated, but unless the business can truly engage employees in the beliefs and behaviours of the business then simply professing motivation counts for nothing.  Similarly, an organisation may well write in its annual report that it is passionate about customer service but unless that translates everyday into people and processes all aligned in the pursuit of excellence then the words mean nothing.

Words are cheap.  It is easy to describe your business or yourself in any way you choose.  But it is only when those words are backed up by actions, when you live the words everyday and incorporate them into your DNA that your true worth shines through
