I am a manager from a European company and recently was promoted to an American branch. I am not sure if this is cultural (geographical I mean), but it really appears that most employees here are used to speaking out loud for the whole room to hear their voice, even if the matter is solely related to their own team or department.
I feel like this disturbs the focus, mine for sure - how can I address this issue tactfully, without offending anyone in my team?
My aim is to keep the environment more calm and where people can focus on their work rather than hear other people's conversations.
Also any insights as to why some company cultures seem to have grown this way (where people show off and talk loud) would be appreciated!
