TRUST YOUR FELLOW GOSSIPERS
In addition to tainting your own reputation, there is another risk to gossiping: that the subject will f ind out you talked about him behind his back. Talk only to colleagues you trust not to reveal your actions. If you’re unsure about someone’s reliability or if you are trying to build a new relationship with someone you don’t know well, take it slowly. Trade small, harmless pieces of information at f irst.
