Too Much Information–TMI

We all know that the abbreviation TMI stands for Too Much Information, and we’ve all been around people who share too much personal information at work. A recent article, You Did What? Spare the Office the Details, takes a look at this growing  phenomenon at work.

I post it here as a reminder that one of the keys to effective communication is knowing what is appropriate to say at work. Believe me, tell people that you had to shave your entire body in order to wear lycra biking pants will, indeed, change the way people think about you–and not in a good way.
