So lets get this straight, looking and staring; whats the difference?
As you walk around especially in your office, do be conscious of where and how you direct your gaze.
Your eyes gaze at something or someone, your focus stays with you and what you are doing at that very moment – now, that’s looking.
Staring, however, is when you stop thinking of what you are doing and your gaze stay fixated on the other person.
Staring, in both professional and social situations cross the line of comfort of the person being stared at.
In this climate of the #metoo movement and news of people being sue-ed for misconduct, you do not want to be entangled in something you might not even be aware of.
