Understandable Solutions Coaching and Consulting

Workplace Gossip = Lack of Trust = Decrease in Productivity = Reduction in Profits

Here’s the deal… when people in the workplace gossip it hurts the company. Inappropriate conversation (or gossip) creates a toxic environment. What’s a “toxic environment?” It is an environment that is fraught with drama, infighting, intimidation, and GOSSIP. Here’s the short of it… when employees gossip it will create a toxic environment. Trust will nosedive. Productivity will evaporate. Profitability will vanish.

When leaders gossip – game over. Success will be elusive. Bottom line (literally) is don’t gossip.
