I loathe managers who use information arbitrage

You know who I’m talking about.

Maybe they are gossipers.  Maybe they are the person who uses you for what you know or what you discovered and they take that information to others in the organization to make themselves look smart.   I call it information arbitrage.   These people use information that they gather from others as a way to propel their own careers and sometimes at the expense of yours.

Avoid them.  Pass the information on yourself.   Information Arbitragers add no value.
