Being faithful to those that are absent is one of the highest forms of respect that you can show to anyone.
I must admit, it is easy to get into a gossip session but it is not a good thing to do and does not serve anyone involved.
Here are a couple points to consider in this area:
1. Say what you mean and mean what you say with everyone you come in contact – This way everyone knows exactly where you stand with them. This doesn’t mean to run rough shod over everyone you know but with consideration for them and with their goals in mind as well.
2. When you are in a situation that someone starts to negatively talk about another leave immediately – Even by standing there and just listening can validate what the other person is saying about the other.
This is just a short list of suggestions that may help you with being faithful to those who are absent.
This post is a little short today. I was going to use a few examples but if those people ever made it over to this blog they would know instantly that I was referring to them.
Special Note: If people will talk about others while they are not there, they will talk about you when you are not there.
As Always, Here’s to Your LifetoSuccess,
