Mindful Sharing

My last thought on sharing in the workplace is that this discussion is ultimately about being mindful of how we present ourselves in words. Words matter. How we describe ourselves and our lives matters. Assessing your audience helps. Keeping your internal monologue internal helps. But really this is about paying attention to our thoughts and how we use words in the workplace. Important stuff that.

And equally important is to note how individual all of these decisions are. We all have different thresholds for what information we're comfortable keeping close and revealing. I make calls based on my knowledge of self and of the folks involved. You do too.
