The work conversations not to have in a cafe...

Who is listening to your conservations?

include the one that I overheard this morning.

It started with a discussion of colleagues who were known to keep prizes that were meant to be given away to customers and then progressed to a detailed criticism of their Human Resources department and how 'unfair' it was that they had imposed a process where they had to 'share' the free gifts and goodies they were given as part of their job. Where was the incentive to do their job and cultivate contacts they complained?

I didn't know the people they talked about. But I might have. Pretty careless conversation for a couple of journalists.

A good reminder to me - that as great as casual coffee networking is for your career - there are just some subjects that shouldn't be discussed in front of strangers!
