Wordle.net is a great site that allows you to use any text or url to create a word pictures to sense the not-so-hidden patterns in your language. You can use this to reveal the common words your organization relies on to carry your essential messages.
I built 45 of these today for another project and many of the messages they revealed were beautifully surprising. I built the picture above from my recent Rant! posts. Even when I’m ranting, it’s still all about driving change.
Try it with your team’s meeting minutes, your ad copy, or your e-mails from the past day or week.
