Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 35 | How to Avoid Toxic Office Gossip

Yes, I’ve worked in workplaces where some employees would speak a language that I don’t understand in front of me and other employees. I’ve lived with housemates that spoke French in front of me when I knew they were gossiping about me. I’ve also worked alongside toxic senior citizens who would berate one another here in Bangkok.

How did I navigate out of it? Well, I severed Thais with everyone, but it’s easier said than done. You need to surround yourself with Growth Friends and Growth Employees. Let’s dive in!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 34 | Giving Bad News

This could be a process, but it could also be beneficial from the end listener’s perspective. It depends how we translate the information and how we react to it, too. I’ve been given lots of bad news before, and although some of it was a shock, it was Happy-Transforming because I can escape a cesspool of hate from specific places.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Overcoming Racism in The Workplace

WOW! Just like 2013, 2014, 2015 all over again! It’s unbelievably unfortunate that I work under the umbrella of people who completely degrade me, lie to me, and are totally unethical, but my values, principles and everything I represent will reign! In today’s podcast, you’re going to hear a bit of a past me, things I had to overcome, present situations, and now to navigate these types of storms in life.

Note: two weeks later, out of the 6 people who I thought were minimizing me and my potentiality, only one of them was. 5 of them fought for me, and in the end, I did get my class back, as well as an additional class and my first-ever corporate class with the company.

In the end, NOT EVERYONE has a myopic point of view, and for the first time since living in Thailand, Thai women stuck up for me and what was right. So I’m truly blessed to work alongside some amazing human beings. For the one that minimized me, I simply will never deal with them again and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
