What are your opinions on entrepreneurial and tech Jargon in the work place?https://sifted.eu/articles/startup-jargon/
Have any of you faced this type of exclusivity when it comes to communicating? This article (in the link) is super timely and I've honestly been thinking about it for a long time! Both outside of work and inside of work.I've joined the tech world probably about 11 months ago (I was previously in the hospitality sector, but have always loved tech throughout my career) however I have noticed the use of tech words being quite prominent and different to how we normally speak. It's definitely interesting to me - I haven't felt like I was 'beneath' anyone or excluded if I didn't use those words but I've seen words like "bandwith" or "circling back" come up so much, but the article is so interesting as it says that it suggests it deliberately excludes people.I'm an open minded person so I was I thinking, 'oh cool new words to try use'. I think it comes from me being brought up and raised in New Zealand - we have jargon that other people in the world don't understand. I also speak two languages so I'm aware that words come and go. I'm also very conscious about speaking when it comes to adapting to the environment for example - I wouldn't try and use complex words when I speak to my parents because they are not fluent in English like me. I possibly have a bilingual mind? I've also moved to Australia probably about 6 years ago and also noticed that jargon is so different too but again, I'm really opened to it.To be honest, I'm not even sure where the lines are drawn now even on a personal level. I've noticed how Gen Z would use words like "we ship it" or "glow-up" in comments and Tik Tok Videos and honestly I do have to look up the dictionary to see what it means. I come up from a different Generation! Haha.What are your thoughts about jargon used in the work place? Have any of you felt excluded? Would love to hear some insights.
