By HR West 2019 speaker, Judy Dang.

I laughed when I saw that gentle encouragement. After reading Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, I hopped over to the Quiet Revolution website. Quiet Manifesto #7: It’s OK to cross the street to avoid making small talk. I chuckled because I’ve regularly done exactly that.

Addressing Workplace Gossip Without Getting Sucked-In!

Posted By Laurie A. Pehar Borsh, Wednesday, July 18, 2018

From our new Employee Engagement Summer Series! 

Addressing Workplace Gossip Without Getting Sucked-In!

Contributed by Lorie Reichel Howe, Founder, Conversations in the Workplace

I’ve heard it said that the way employees communicate either makes or breaks an organization. Spoken words are powerful containing the ability to help or harm others. One form of communication: gossip, is a killer of workplace culture. The way managers and employees respond to gossip either safeguards or erodes workplace culture.

What is workplace gossip?

In a nutshell, gossip is communicating negatively to a coworker about another coworker. When Alex says something negative about Addison behind her back that he would never say to her face, that’s gossip. While many attempt to sugarcoat gossip disguising it as a concern: “Oh, I’m so concerned about Addison, did you know that he/she…”

Don’t get sucked in.
