How to be a Fine Communicator with Someone New in the Office
If you have been working for a long time, you will surely notice the influx of employees that have just been hired to join the company. You were probably told to give them a warm welcome especially if you will be closely working with that person in the future.
Here are some important tips.
If you don't think it is time yet to get very casual, just keep things professional until both of you feel comfortable. Should the time come that you think it is time to get to know them, always keep the conversation light and easy. It is only when you feel close that you can get into more sensitive issues like politics or religion.
The most important step to becoming a fine communicator with someone new in the office is knowing when it is time to talk or listen. You could say it is a “give and take” kind of thing because in the end, both sides gain something from it.
