Don’t communicate information you wouldn’t want communicated about you. Rumors fly around the office before you can even turn your head. Do not be known as the “gossiper” or the “sharer” of the office. Gossip is information that is meant to hurt another person or information that is shared about another that is not truth. Although, it maybe easy to get wrapped up into gossip, spend your time not taking from the bucket of your co-workers but filling them up with positives.
Salt social media specialist Austine Etcheverry, suggests that you keep your opinions about your co-workers in your head. You do not want to run the risk of doing damage to a healthy co-worker relationship because you spread a rumor about someone. It may feel that it is harmless gossip when you are spreading it, however, it may be hurtful to the others in the office.
Our communication with our co-workers will determine the overall attitude of the office. Patients pick up when we have an office that does not respect each other or if we have an office that supports open communication. Take the time to use positive and supportive words to your teammates.
Great teams take effort. Take time to work on your practice regularly to build quality communication and strengthen your results. For more information and to read other articles, please visit us at www.saltdpm.com.
