Gossip, Rumors & Workplace Busybodies: How to Promote Positive Co-worker Communication

The destructive effects of gossip and grapevine rumors can undermine performance and damage working relationships. When toxic talk infects an entire department, managers may be tempted to throw up their hands and just give in. They often feel powerless to counteract the damage caused by disparaging comments and persistent negativity, believing that "you can’t change human nature."

But tolerating these harmful behaviors is definitely NOT the best solution.

To help you take back control, Administrative Professional Today is teaming up with workplace guru and syndicated columnist Marie McIntyre on a new webinar that will help you successfully defuse the negative impact of gossip, rumors, and workplace busybodies. Join us Feb. 11 for How to Promote Positive Co-worker Communication.
