Have you ever been trying to get something done, but a coworker won’t stop trying to socialize with you? Your coworker may just want to idly pass the time or talk about a genuine personal issue he or she has, and it may be tempting to be rude to your coworker in order for you to concentrate on your work. However, if you want to maintain a good relationship with your coworkers, being rude is not a great option. So how do you get your work done and maintain friendly relationships with coworkers? This course demonstrates a communication strategy to stop your coworker from preventing you getting your work done. It is important to maintain your relationships with your coworkers without neglecting the obligations of your job, and you will learn how to do so here.

This course is part of the What To Say When series on workplace communication. These short vignettes present common communication dilemmas in the workplace. Human Resource expert Hugh Murray shares communication strategies and tactics for navigating these situations.

Each vignette features narrative examples for employees to see the wrong and right way to handle a problem, and ends with a short assessment to measure learner comprehension. Each course also includes a leader guide, so you can use this course in a group setting, and a downloadable “key points” document to help you remember the communication strategy. These courses make for great training on their own, or used as a series.
