I am having trouble with some people (directs and peers) that come to my office to ask something about work but then they tend to stay and start small talks or tell me stories that are not business related.
Some, I understand, are just looking for "face time" and these are not so hard but others just stay and go on and on and on...
I have been really busy and this time "wasted" really bothers me.
I know we are supposed to give people attention and develop relationships but sometime I loose a whole morning with one after the anther coming in. It affects productivity.
How can I politely ask for people to go back to work?
