It’s funny how things work out sometimes. Since the beginning, ‘language’ has been a core pillar of People First. I’ve written about it from time to time, but was not intending to get into the meat for a while. Then – after last week’s newsletter, I received an email that resonated in so many ways, that this week’s newsletter morphed into riff on …. Language.

And then this morning, I was just browsing through some of my draft posts deciding what to publish next – and up pops this from Hugh Macleod and Gaping Void.

In other words, successful CEOS tend to ‘get’ the culture idea that language is the foundation of culture.

Now we just need to ensure that the corporates don’t takeover the language of culture as they have changed our day to day language, with their militaristic business jargon.
