If all else fails, the best policy is always to be diplomatic but direct and speak your mind. Most often, it is possible to find a solution because maybe the person you’re annoyed with doesn’t even know it. If someone is bothering you and is preventing you from doing your job, this is a perfect situation where being upfront pays off. Try to be polite and ask them to let you do your job and to go to you only if they have work-related questions.
The last point Business Daily News discusses is just to stay positive. It’s important to have your boundaries and let others know when their behavior is making you uncomfortable, but there is no use in dwelling on negativity.
