How To Be A Good Cube-Mate
At work I share my office with none other than Morning man Mark Richards. It's pretty much a college dorm with the jokes we pull, and we both get along for the most part. Maybe you’re stuck in a cubicle with someone else. If you want to succeed, you should know how to work well in a cubicle situation.
Here are some tips from CNN on how to be a good cube-mate:
Get used to handling distractions- You will be distracted working in a cubicle, but learn to refocus and prioritize.
Make your space your own- Personalize your space. Bring pictures, and other fun things in.
Don't use speaker phone- Your co-workers will be distracted and annoyed.
Leave for meetings- Don't hold big meetings at the cubicle; take them elsewhere.
Watch your mouth- People can hear you, so stay clear of office gossip or foul language in the cubicle.
Manners matter- When everyone can see you, you need to be polite and use your manners.
