How to Disagree with Someone More Powerful than You

How to Disagree with Someone More Powerful than You | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Your boss proposes a new initiative you think won’t work. Your senior colleague outlines a project timeline you think is unrealistic. What do you say when you disagree with someone who has more power than you do? How do you decide whether it’s worth speaking up? And if you do, what exactly should you say?

In change programs you often deal with a lot of politics and may be tempted to go along. If you are committed to the success of the change you must also dare take personal risks. You need to say what you honestly think is going on and sometimes report hard things to hear. Tough messages for the sponsors, often in very high positions. They may not be used to getting honest feedback or constructive criticism. Prepare well.

5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Relationship with Your Boss (And Your Next Boss)

5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Relationship with Your Boss (And Your Next Boss) | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

The most important driver of employee engagement is the relationship they have with their immediate manager,” says Piera Palazzolo, Senior Vice President of Dale Carnegie Training. She says the most successful relationships are those where bosses and employees really get to know one another.

“That’s different from years ago, when you weren’t supposed to ask any personal questions. Those lines are blurred now, people want you to care about them, particularly if there’s something going on in their lives that might affect their performance.”

If you want to have a great relationship with your boss find out how you can take items off his plate. Find out what your boss is handling that you can help out with and make his life easier. This will increase your value to the person whose opinion matters the most, your boss.

A great boss can change your career, and a terrible boss can really hold you back!

Luckily I have only had one terrible boss years ago, and he taught me without realising what to look for in a workplace ...

Want To Be Respected? Then Stop Using these 50 Phrases

Want To Be Respected? Then Stop Using these 50 Phrases | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

When you're a boss, you sometimes talk a lot.

The problem might be, though, that you talk a lot of gibberish.

This can annoy your staff to the point at which they think you're not worth listening to. Which might just affect your ambitions.

Here, then, is a new survey in which  British employees declared their 50 most annoying phrases that come out of bosses' mouths.

It was commissioned by SPANA, an organization that offers free veterinary care for animals in developing countries.

As we first run down the list of the worst 10, please spend your day monitoring how many of these phrases you use. Then repent.

A New survey asks employees which pieces of business speak they hate most. There are a lot.

This is surprising, we all use the words, cliches in fact: thinking out of the box, touch base, going forward, heads up, its on my radar, and even game changer! And we think these words are cool! The truth is that these words cosntitute what is called 'gibberish'. It is surprising that using such high sounding terms might annoy staff into thinking that their boss is not worth listening to! Well if a large number of British employees wrote these words and expressions in their list of fifty most annoying phrases used by their bosses, then there must be some truth in this!

Fred Stenson's curator insight, February 9, 2016 12:16 PM

Even people in business are annoyed at these. Why can't anyone stop using them?

How to Deal With A Boss With Zero Emotional Intelligence | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

You might already know that your emotional intelligence can influence your job success. But what about your callously oblivious boss or your ambiguously rigid colleagues?

 

Boosting your emotional intelligence might mean you are better at your job--but what can you do if your boss or colleagues don't exhibit anything close to emotional intelligence?

 

The good news is, the situations more hopeful than you think. The bad news is, you might have to have a difficult conversation. But don't worry, we've got you covered.
