There’s always plenty of material for gossip in an office. Everyone has at least one or two co-workers they can’t stand, an over-demanding manager, a project manager who sends midnight emails—or all of the above. I believe gossips is one of the human natures hence get rid of negative gossips and encourage positive gossips instead. Think of examples where peers and bosses can communicate to each other what they feel proud about at work. Start morning huddles with positive gossip and reinforce the cultural values and key behaviors you want through story-telling. Just make sure whatever you’re sharing hasn’t been disclosed to you in confidence.
