A Word About Terminology
As mentioned on page 147 of the assigned reading, there is a section titled, “A Word About Terminology,” which is an important topic that was discussed. Specifically, it is a topic that can be controversial and highly sensitive. That being said, it is important for us as current or future leaders to understand what terminology is universally used and understood as respectful and does not lack sensitivity. As the chapter talks about different cultures, there are some cultures that may use specific terminology that they may not understand is offensive to others. They may be doing this unintentionally; therefore, it is important for the professional world to establish a language, or “politically correct” language, that can be deemed as respectful and sensitive to all. With this in mind, enforcing appropriate language within a work place can help the organization work appropriately with diverse employees and assist with maintaining a culture that is supportive of each other.
