reach out

To fit in at Capital One, it's essential that you use the phrase "reach out" at least once in every meeting.

Reach out [rēch out]
As in “I’m going to reach out to Tom and his group so they know of this change. Then I’ll reach out and hug them.” An abstract and confusing way to let other people know you’re going to contact someone else. It implies a type of human contact that seems weird, weird, weird in the workplace.


Really, it's essential.

Oh, office jargon. How about "let's circle in with Steve" or "I'll circle back with you when I know."

Serenity now.
