All of us could use a little help sometimes when it comes to navigating social situations. And even if you think you’ve got it all down, you might be surprised by how many people don’t know how to act in specific settings and how much more smoothly social interactions can go with just a few adjustments.

Here are some tips on how to do just that:

Do not interfere in the business of others

If one person is relating something, do not break in with your own story no matter how interesting it may seem to yourself. You can tell it later or at another time but now let each person have an opportunity to relate experiences without interruption.

Respect the privacy of others

If two or more are conversing together, and you come near them, do not join unless desired or invited. It is impolite for anyone to disturb two persons who wish for a private conversation.Respect privacy

One of the essential skills to have in a professional setting is being aware of social manners. It’s easy to get caught up in your world and forget that you’re one person within a larger group. Still, if you remember the following rules above, you’ll be able to navigate in any professional scenario.
