I recently came upon your webcast and absolutely look forward to a new one every week now. My commute to and from work is time well spent now. I did a search on all of the old podcast and might have missed one, but I am looking for a podcast or even some advice on how to handle rumors.
I work in a small company(75 people) and am in middle management and have been in my position for 6 months (external hire).Rumors are flying about position changes and my direct report. I always take the high road, but keep getting dragged back into the muck and mire, because I happen to be a good listener. I don't add fuel to the flame by adding what I hear or observe.
Any advice on the best way to handle this, I think a podcast on this might be something everyone would benefit from.
Thanks for the work you put into the podcast, it is making a difference out here.
