Anyone just trying to tune out the layoff news and focus on their own thing? It's all people talk about in my office, and I've heard the same from friends. I feel the more people keep talking about it they are distracting themselves and really creating negative vibes.
Tips for dealing with this? It's almost a self fulfilling prophecy for some people on my team who are so panicked by the news and headlines they aren't focusing on their jobs and basically creating a situation where they are going to get laid off if it continues.
