Office gossip

Gossip is degrading and will destroy an organization.  It is important to develop and maintain a culture in which negatives are handed up and positives are handed down. –Dave Ramsey

What would happen if your employer banned office gossip? How would people react? Well, a company led by Dave Ramsey did just that, and they\’ve had some interesting results.

Below is the link to the audio file so you can listen to the explanation for yourself (and you should!). I\’d love to hear your opinion of the policy. Is it feasible? Would you like to work for a company with a “no gossip” policy? Why?
