After a joining a new workplace, I am trying to familiarize myself with everything around in the lab and I am getting my experienced seniors to help me out with every experiment or lab instrument.
Now I appreciate their support and help but they have tendency to go very fast about explaining the whole thing without giving me anytime to imbibe all the info. Furthermore, I find it highly annoying when they will step on my toes when the instructor had directly asked me to do the experiment.
How do I politely tell them to shoo away and let me do the work my way regardless it being slow and doing it differently than them (please note that I am not wrong but just doing it in a different way)?
How do I tell them that I have a different way of organizing my work without sounding like a "rebel" who doesn't like to do things the conventional way?
I would like them to give me suggestions and constructive criticisms/improvisation but not force me to adopt their way of doing things.
