Why should you attend?

Gossip. It happens in every workplace and in every family. For some reason, we just love to talk about others. Until that conversation is about us. When we're the subject of office gossip, it no longer seems like harmless entertainment.

So, what do you do? Do you confront the gossip? Do you deny it? Do you ignore it?

Is gossip in the workplace really dangerous? Can it ruin your reputation? Should you take the "high road" and ignore it, or should you deal with it head-on?

Find out what to do and why you should do it. Don't "guess" at the correct way of dealing with office gossip - there is TOO MUCH at stake to chance.
