John McIntyre of You Don't Say reveals what's really meant by "grow the business," a phrase that sets certain sets of teeth on edge:
Grow the business, like all cant phrases, does have a meaning, but it’s not the ostensible one. It is a signal for people who sit in meetings and write memos. It is like the secret handshake or the foot-tapping on the floor of the men’s room stall; it signals I am one of you, and, having accomplished that, it need carry no further freight.
