Cubicle Etiquette-Creating a Positive, Productive Workplace

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Cubicles appear to be your own private place in the office but, in reality, they are only a mockery of privacy. It’s like working in a goldfish bowl. Co-workers stand behind you as you read your mail, people overhear you when you speak on the phone, and it’s difficult to concentrate when you’re surrounded by incessant sounds, smells and conversations. The short walls of your cubicle don’t allow one bit of privacy and this can create a great deal of tension, both for you and co-workers.

Whether you’re in a cubicle or share an open workspace, bad manners in the workplace negatively impact everyone, by creating frustration and wasting time. During this one-hour telephone seminar, Debra J. Schmidt will teach you easy-to-follow etiquette rules that will help strengthen relationships with your workplace neighbors…co-workers. The results? A more positive and productive workplace.
