On the QT: Sharing information in confidence

Off the record. This is just between us. How is it then that so many people know?

I’m continually continually astounded how quickly information travels – and I’m just thinking about the traditional gossip train, rather than our present efficient cyber, socially networked world. One person knows, then everyone knows. How is it we haven’t observed this trend and changed our actions?

A couple suggestions before you share any piece of information: would you be prepared to speak this into a microphone on stage in front of those involved; and if you run for office, would this conversation come back to haunt you?

  1. Staying away from gossip is tough. It could go both ways. In my experience, I've refused to participate in those sessions and they've mande a powerful impact.
