Tuesday Tips: 5 Tips for Talking Politics at the Workplace

  1. Don’t do it. Stay productive and focus on the job at hand instead of wasting time on the latest political topic.
  1. Understand the ground rules at your office. Workplaces can ban political talks as well as posters, signs and buttons.
  1. Show respect. A simple rule to defusing a potential disagreement is be respectful of opposing views and not wasting your time trying to change minds.
  1. Be diplomatic. If you feel you are being dragged into a political discussion, remember you do not owe anyone your opinions so you can either decline politely or keep them brief.
  1. Watch what you say online. What you say on your social media pages can come back to haunt you at work.
