Handle This: He's a Close Talker

Handle This: He's a Close Talker


You've been at your new job for about three months now. You love the work, the hours, even the people, but there's one co-worker who doesn't know how to respect your personal space. You're currently working directly together on your first major project, and every time you meet to discuss, he's up in your face — it's official, he's a close talker!

You're not claustrophobic per se, but you do appreciate a comfortable distance between those you're engaging in conversation. Since you're still the "new girl" around the office, you don't know how to bring it up without hurting his feelings, but you simply can't take talking nose to nose for much longer. This is going to be an awkward moment for both of you so tell me, so how would you handle it?
