This can not be understated. The key that I have found to addressing this problem is open communication and consistency. Open can be as obvious as a sign posted in an entrance or a message sent to your peers via email. The most uncomfortable part is the consistency though. Have to ask someone to leave in a fairly firm voice can be quite disconcerting, especially if that someone is a superior. My experience is that once the superiors "get it" they are very supportive.
Then again they may just be afraid of me. That whole "missing head" thing really freaks some people out.
