Do you practice common courtesies with cubicle coworkers? Rules to consider: 1) Remember, you have neighbors. Be self-aware regarding speech topics, tone, and volume. 2) Cubicle workers often complain about disruptions. Minimize them by creating traditions that reinforce everyone’s role as a gatekeeper in maintaining an effective work environment. 3) Use staff meetings to discuss the cubicle environment and add to or amend your traditions. 4) Be sensitive to a coworker’s body language that may indicate annoyances, such as unannounced appearances at one’s cubicle to discuss issues.
