Company Culture: News or Gossip

There’s company news: Meant to inform. Meant to be objective.

Then there’s company gossip: Facts not checked. Assumptions spread. Subjective.

Beware. It’s easy to communicate with good intentions, yet fall victim to gossip.

Next time you communicate something significant, think first. Do I know enough to inform effectively, with proof and facts to back me up? Or is there still unknowns, holes, or gaps in the story?

Communicate wisely.
