Taught by Lecturer Chuck E. Cheese | Permalink | Tagged as bandwidth, communicate, leverage, opportunity, ping, prior life, | Comments »

A fancy version of the word "use" which is normally seen when a lower level person is communicating with an upper level person and is intended to make them look like they are more important than they really are

John would be a great addition to the development team. In his prior life he was the team lead at Schnocker Software so there is a lot of opportunity to leverage his product knowledge to help us make a sale. I'll ping him and see if he has any bandwidth for the sales initiative.

Actually, this definition sucks. Let me add my own. You can also share "leverage" with a friend or share it on Twitter.
