Now that so
many people are back in the workplace, some very interesting challenges are
popping up. On one hand, most are really enjoying the office camaraderie and
renewed ability to engage in person again.
But, on the other hand, there are plenty of people who are struggling with so many distractions as they try to get their work done each day. They actually flourished working from home because they could set their own rules and boundaries to maximize their productivity. Plus they didn’t have to deal with any toxic workplace issues like gossip or harassment.
One of the
challenges many of you might be facing now is how to set good boundaries in
your office (or other place of employment) without sounding rude or feeling
like you’re not being a good team player. So, even if you have a hard time
speaking up for yourself, there are definitely ways to establish boundaries at
work and not feel like you are alienating others.
Did people often walk into your office or workspace and interrupt you?
Was your supervisor fond of asking you to come in early or stay late?
Were there nearby coworkers who never stopping talking?
Whatever situations were problematic for you before, write them down and assess your ability to make any changes to them as you go forward so you can do some pre-emptive planning to offset these problems.
“Hi Team, In an effort for
me to be as productive as possible, I’d like to request that if you need to meet
with me, please send a calendar invitation rather than just coming into my
office. With so much on my plate right now, it’s important for me to manage my
time as well as possible.
As a general rule, people will respect your courage in speaking up.
By taking simple steps like
these, you create a better work environment that helps you put your best foot
forward, sets a good example for others, and optimizes your productivity and
sense of satisfaction for a job well done!
