Question to Ask the Workplace Doctor about the boss’s gossip:
I work at a school as a custodian, and my boss always talks about my performance to other co-workers; is this OK? Shouldn’t he keep opinions to himself?
Yes. As our parents said, “If you can say something good about someone, don’t say anything.” That goes for bosses when talking about those they boss unless it is in a supportive instructional way and this is especially important when speaking about someone to others.
