3 Easy Ways to Deal with Office Gossip

Get a few minutes, find a private place and casually say that some not so good news is floating around. Let the person know that you’re aware and it’s been a bitter feeling for you. Allow the person to clarify his remarks about you. If he regrets saying things, forgive him. But tell him you wouldn’t like to listen to negative things the next time. Now, close the matter and don’t speak to anyone about this. And earn his trust.
