Organizational Lexicon

  1. 1. Tool: Organizational Lexicon A lexicon is a set of words used by a person, organization or group. By creating your very own lexicon, you up the odds that you’ll use words that make you stand out from the crowd. And standing out from the crowd is a good thing when it comes to marketing! HOW TO USE THIS TOOL: .................................................................................................................................... • Start by picking adjectives that best describe your organization. This is a simple way to define your brand personality. For instance, one organization might be thoughtful, compassionate, and diverse while another is ambitious, irreverent and forward-focused. The words these two organizations use should reflect their unique personality. (This step is most effective when you get input from your whole team.) • Pick verbs, nouns and adjectives that align with your brand’s personality. • Identify words that everyone in your organization will avoid. For instance, you might decide that ‘awesome’ isn’t professional enough or that ‘vital’ is overused. • Share the lexicon far and wide! The more people know which words to use and which to avoid, the more consistently you’ll stand out from the crowd.
