Gossip is one of the most toxic behaviors that can go on in a workplace. Your most toxic colleagues could be trying to undermine one another, sabotage each other and gain favor with you by making you dislike someone else. You don’t have to be a part of that. Master the non-response. Someone can share gossip with you and you can say, “Huh. It is what it is” or, you can even change the subject entirely. It’s awkward for someone to abrasively steer the conversation back to their gossip once you’ve moved on.
