Matthew Stibbe says: “Passion has no place in business“.
He says the word inflationary language and it is also the wrong word. Stibbe offers alternatives.
I cringe when people use the word passion, which can mean everything from “this is something I tolerate” through “I have to say this because my boss is watching” and “Oh bugger I better be passionate about something because everyone else is and if don’t say this I something is wrong with me”.
Passion is also a terrible cliché.
