My wife and her team were reviewing corporate stress management protocols in the office. Helpfully, for those in distress, there was a long list of potential stress management strategies. Included in the bulleted strategies was multi killing (instead of multi skilling). I am sure that would be the ultimate stress relief (for about a minute). Imagine if you could dispose of all those annoying colleagues in one fell swoop. When she posed the question to her boss, he came back that she had to make sure that she could still get her teams work done and that she would have to clean up. Not really recommended, but worth pondering. Perhaps this is the corporate alternative to downsizing and layoffs.
