HERE ARE TWO sure-fire ways from author and trainer Jan Fraser to stop office gossip in its tracks:

1. Post an office-gossip policy that reads:
“Is it true?”
“Is it kind?”
“Is it important?”
“If it’s not, then we don’t listen.”

2. Say the following whenever someone offers you a juicy tidbit about a person in your office: “She never says anything bad about you.”
“Then,” Fraser says, “just walk away.”
