Have you been injured at work in Lincolnshire?
In any job, there is bound to be a time where you just don’t agree with something that your employer has said or done, and this can affect your work. If your employer is trying to get you to do something that you don’t agree with, it can make it hard for you to continue in your job at all, but the last thing you want to do is get into a bitter dispute with the person who is able to hire and fire anyone in the company.
The best way for you to confront your boss about something that you aren’t happy about is to do so professionally, and here are some ways to do this.
- Set aside an appropriate time. Not only should you ensure that you have a meeting with your employer to talk about the situation, but you should also pick your time carefully so that your employer is more receptive to what you have to say. Friday afternoon is generally better than first thing Monday morning, for example.
- Listen to their side. Just because you feel that you are in the right doesn’t mean that you are, so always be prepared to listen to what your employer has to say so that you can come up with appropriate and intelligent responses. If you then realise that you are actually in the wrong then you can back down gracefully.
- Be assertive but not forceful. Try to remember that this is your employer and that they are above you in the company hierarchy even if they are in the wrong. You should be assertive in getting your points across, but try to avoid being too forceful or unprofessional.
- Back down if you need to. If you realise that you are in the wrong, or sense that the conversation is becoming risky for you, know when to back down gracefully.
