Keep Confidences and Avoid Gossip
As you entrust yourself to others, you’ll find that people will “open up” to you more — sharing personal information and details about their lives outside of work. They’ll share confidential information — without necessarily identifying it (or calling it) confidential information. They trust you, and sometimes just need someone to listen to what they have to say — knowing or believing that what they tell you is strictly between you and them.
Keep confidential information to yourself — respect the privacy of others; respect the trust they’ve place in you; respect the relationship you have with them. Refrain from gossiping or sharing the information with others.
How trustworthy are you? Be a role-model for keeping confidences.
All the best to you!
