Some interesting words from wordsmith.org, all avoidable behaviour.
Buggin's turn (BUG-inz turn) noun: Assignment to a position based on seniority or rotation, instead of merit. Also Buggins's turn
misoneism (mis-uh-NEE-izm) noun: A hatred or fear of change or innovation
catachresis (kat-uh-KREE-sis) noun: The misuse of words
Many liked i-TFTD #18: Learning from the Dictionary hence this reprise (return to a theme).
I hope I am not indulging in catachresis when I say that we should not encourage promotions based on Buggin's turn, and misoneism should be one of the disqualifying criteria for senior leadership roles.
