How to handle people who stand too close when they talk?

Recommended Posts

Just joined a new team. This senior like to stand too close when he talk. When I back off, he close the distance. Got any polite way to handle? Might be a little sensitive to tell him directly. Advice appreciated. Kum Siah.

Cross your arms, move yourself so that there is something (like an office chair or wastepaper basket) between the two of you, and/or explicit hint to him by commenting on how there is another party who tends to stand too close when talking.
