Overcoming Gossip at Your Office


Do you have gossip in your office? Generally, gossip happens when people are not courageous enough to confront somebody with a problem they see and they want to feel better about themselves being different than that person gossiped about. So instead of talking to the person they go and talk to their friend.

One of the core indicators of gossip in an organization is distance. You used to have a close relationship with somebody, but now they’re kind of standoffish. They’re a little far away. There’s a good chance that someone has been gossiping to that person about you, or you have been gossiping about that person to someone else. There’s a scripture verse that says a whisperer separates intimate friends. And that really happens with gossip.
