Everything I'm not…Makes me Everything I am…

Dave Ramsey and Unity…Part III

The second Enemy of Unity is…GOSSIP!  By definition, gossip is when a negative is discussed with anyone that can’t solve the problem. Gossip is degrading and can destroy any relationship, team, organization, family, church, etc. Dave believes that a successful leader develops and maintains a culture in which NEGATIVES are HANDED UP and POSITIVES are HANDED DOWN and LATERAL. Meaning that all negatives should only be told to the person that can solve the problem which would normally be a manager, parent, elder, etc. Only positives things should be shared with peers and lower level people. I understand that people need a place to express themselves, but it should always be someone in a positive position to change the situation and solve the problem.

Mr. Ramsey has made gossip a fireable offense and he is very clear of that in his hiring process. His team seems to love it and it seems to be working great for him after starting a business with himself and a card table, to now having over 300 team members.
