I have very much the same advice that was offered by Bob Brezina. I always glanced to make sure the there were no legal implications of the words written. The only thing you cannot do with legal issues is nothing. I made a brief mental note and immediately filed it in file #13, better known as the shredder.
In addition I took further steps to prevent individuals from passing along gossip about others by simply saying that I did not want to hear it and that if something needed to be done they should write it down and sign it. It became official business at the time it was signed.
Strong leaders do not seek or act on gossip, inferences, or innuendos dealing with the individuals or the school.
Think. Work. Achieve.
