OOh, tricky one! I would definitely start of with a positive (great standard of work), then go into a "but". I think you need to tell her reasonably straight - there's always a problem that if you try to soften the blow too much, the employee doesn't really hear what you are trying to tell them, and ends up confused, or with the wrong message.

I think you need to emphasise that you have noticed this behaviour, and yes, focus on how her tittle tattle could have an adverse effect on the company.

Good luck!
