O.C. Isom shares how to deal with difficult people and conflict in the workplace through his new book, "WOUNDS CAUSED BY GOSSIP."


It is time for employees and employers to maximize their potential, performance and productivity.

Gossip can have harmful and hurtful effects on people. In a workplace scenario, gossip can cause unhappiness and conflict that reduces productivity and negatively affects the environment. O.C. Isom is committed to educating, training, and equipping employers and employees on managing gossip, developing positive communication skills and being transparent in “WOUNDS CAUSED BY GOSSIP Attitudes and Conflicts in the Workplace.”

With more than forty years of experience dealing with conflicts in the workplace, Isom highlights the importance of effective communication and the negativity gossip brings to a working environment. He has learned the main reasons for most disorder in workplaces today—including the White House—are poor communication, refusal to work as a team and bad attitudes. These can all lead to division, bitterness, and emotional wounds that cause the workload to seize. When issues go unresolved or ignored in workplaces, employees become frustrated and even discouraged.

In each chapter, Isom offers steps and tips on achieving a happy and healthy working environment that minimizes gossip and conflict. There are many inadequate and tyrant leaders in workplaces who abuse their power, which can give employees emotional wounds. With improved communication skills, both leaders and employees can have a more enjoyable and beneficial workplace.

“It is time for employees and employers to maximize their potential, performance and productivity,” Isom said.

Isom speaks out to all businesses because workplace growth and development are essential for a working environment. It increases moral growth and greater customer service that will benefit organizations and employees.
