BizQuiz: Should I share this gossip?
If you answered no to questions one through six AND your gossip is intended for good, not evil, it might be good to share.
Good gossip like, "I saw Dr. Smith do a great job with that cat," "Did you know Liz at reception is having a really tough day today?" or "I noticed Bill struggled with that. Could we do a better job training?" can serve a great purpose.
Comments like those celebrate accomplishments, bring people closer together, and let others know about important information they need to do their jobs or help others do theirs.
