We've all experienced this. You are sitting in the staff room, and someone starts to tell a story about a colleague, a patient or one of the managers, and before you know it everyone is sharing gossip. We even see this happening in churches, although here it is more likely to be called 'sharing prayer news'. Is this just harmless banter, or is there a more dangerous side to it? And how do we respond to gossipy situations without coming over as prim or moralistic?
In this episode of 1st incision, I am talking to Esther and Rachel, two of CMF's nursing and midwifery team, about how we can counter some of the negative aspects of workplace culture in a Christlike manner.
