    I like all of the above advice, except for the flag – it seems a little offputting to me for some reason. What I also do is the “walk and talk”. If a coworker is being a little too chatty and I need to get work done I ask her to follow me while I go grab a file, make a quick photocopy, or freshen up my coffee. She gets to chit-chat, I get something productive done that doesn’t require too much focus (people try to talk to me while I’m writing emails and then I have to ask them to come back in a few because I can’t split my focus that way), and it gets both of us up and moving around!
