How do you respond to negative conversations?

You're eating lunch with some coworkers. The conversation turns to a coworker who's not at the table and the remarks are cruel. They're very critical of her work habits, her clothes, her car, and just about anything else you can imagine. And then the fatal sentence, "And did you hear..." starts the gossip.

So what do you do?

Keep your mouth shut, glad you're at the table so they won't talk about you? Or, join in and add your own flair to the negativity?

What if you open a window on the conversation and let some fresh air in? Redirect the conversation and change the subject to something more positive or at least lighter. Or, reframe the conversation and comment on something you admire about the woman or some positive character trait she possesses. Or, remove yourself from the conversation. Get up and leave. Act like these folks have a contagious disease. And really, they do...negativity!

Open windows and let some fresh air in on negative conversations. Redirect, reframe, remove yourself from them and make a life worth living as you Live Positive.
