I worked in a division of 150 employees and a position where I was fully visible to everyone else. I told five or so people, including my direct supervisor and the division head, and asked them not to tell anyone else. They didn’t as the rumor machine was running off the rails when I got back after 8 months.
And that’s why I didn’t want to share. My business, in an organization where my future career(if any), was going to be in a fairly visible upper management position. I didn’t want a whole bunch of people yapping about me. They did anyway, but at least they were entirely clueless and basically inventing things.
