Watch Your Lips

Watch Your Lips

Last week, media sources reported that French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s overheard remark to President Barack Obama that Israel’s prime minister is a “liar” laid bare escalating international frustration at deadlocked peace efforts — and left all three world leaders looking bad.

Obama, heard through an interpreter, responded, “I have to work with him every day.”

Some Israelis felt Sarkozy uttered out loud what many think in private about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Others were shocked and embarrassed.

How many times have you experienced similar utterances in your workplace?

What have been the ramifications?

Watch your lips – because loose lips can sink ships.
