10 Ways to Make Yourself Unfireable

Tania Khadder

5. Steer Clear of Gossip

News travels fast. Especially juicy news. Well, guess what. If you heard it, chances are, so did your manager. And if you play any part in its proliferation, chances are, your manager will know that too.

As tempting as it can be, don’t get sucked into office gossip. As soon as you do, you implicate yourself, make enemies and come off as unprofessional. If someone else insists on telling you something, make sure it stops with you.

The workplace might sometimes feel like high school, but it isn’t (thank God!). The ramifications of being the office gossip are a lot more serious than detention or a missed birthday party invite.

    I think that this advice offers a good outline for integrity in the workplace. There are no guarentees in life, even if you follow all the 'rules.' But, if you live with integrity, you will not have anything to be ashamed of. Even if a 'toxic' boss fires you. And a job should never take over your whole life. You can work with enthusiasm and dedication without being consumed by the job.

    This is BS. If management want to fire you, management does not care
    what you do for the company.

    I LOVED it! I think you should make this available in a table form for my employees to keep as a reference. This was a good list to remind everyone in my organization why they are here and basic guide to check in with themselves when the office drama seems to be weighing them down. Heck, I'd like a copy for my desk drawer so that I can remind myself to fight complacency!

    I aggressively pursued most all of these assets, but in the end was terminated by a toxic boss. He so thoroughly resented my image, he hired people he could groom and be me. There was an immense thrust of activity downplay my accomplishments as common enough that anyone could be as productive. Every new suggested I made was viewed as a threat to his position. I am just left with the prevailing set of emotions debating my ability to ever commit myself to a job again.
