To be honest the best strategy for behavior at work. However, with any rule there are exceptions, and you need to understand where the treacherously thin line between the rational and the sincerity of her evil antagonista — utterly shameless frankness.
"It is important to be careful what you say to your boss, as even the slightest slip can cost you a career" — says Ryan Kahn (Kahn Ryan), founder of HR-The Hired Group.
"Great practice to pause before you give something, something you may later regret. And if you think that you may regret later on said — most likely, it will. Better to wait until your thoughts will formulate to a degree that will be framed in an acceptable form and endowed with clear meaning," says Lynn Taylor (Lynn Taylor), is an expert in the field of HR.
But apart from the obvious — such as the ambiguous jokes and obscene insults — there are still some phrases you should not say to your boss. Here they are:
It's not in my job description
Bravo, excellent work: you have thoroughly familiarized with the service manual, 14 times read the contract and are ready to defend them against any treacherous attempt to change the sacred list of your responsibilities. But if you are asked to help with something, and you have quite enough for this work time, this phrase you will understand superior that anxious care only about their personal success and the results of the work of the team you just do not care.
Of course, it is possible that you're just trying to be funny and ridiculous joke that is certainly commendable. However, the sense of humor is very relative, and that phrase in any case, it will make you look not too professional.
Sometimes you just need to do something to their colleagues from other departments, without asking yourself what exactly do you get for it. The chiefs rarely take well to those who do not know how to play as a team, and your help surely will not go unnoticed.
You should never threaten your boss fired. First, it is in rough shape show your lack of professionalism, and secondly, your supervisor will understand that you are extremely unreliable as an employee.
Nobody likes a know-it-alls and wannabes (even themselves). If one of the previous places of work you are faced with a similar situation and you have an idea about how to deal with the current task, do please, without wording, bordering on reproachful comparisons.
Oh, this Valera, always because of him you are all wrong, but you are fine, work perfectly. What do you think: how often does it happens that your work is done poorly solely because of the mistakes of other employees? A mistake can make one, but blaming others is an extremely slippery slope. However, if you acknowledge your mistake and will make it clear to the chief that all understood and ready to be corrected, it will put you in a very favorable light.
Telling the boss bad things about colleagues at least not very politely. In addition, the Manager can think, and I do not pour you mud until he was in a business meeting? In any case, it's better to refrain from discussing colleagues with the boss.
"Yes, I CEO walk!" you cry silently, and shake an imaginary fist in a fit of real anger. This is actually the situation with zero chance of winning, except in those cases where you want is illegal to fire or deny you are due money. Appealing to authorities of higher level, you mostly would only anger his head and mess up a relationship with him.
Just bomb: now I'll tell you who I yesterday managed to get to bed!
The relationship "Manager — subordinate" can sometimes turn into a real friendship, but to share the details of his personal life at work is not a good idea. Even the walls have ears, and whether you need to create another reason for the slippery rumors?
The grass is always greener. If what is happening in the team turns into blatant favoritism, better focus on their own career. And stop already nervous for any reason.
