Disagreement at work can be good. If everyone nodded their head yes at every crossroads, then a business wouldn’t progress. Critical discussion is a positive force for businesses (for the most part).
But how do you disagree with your boss? Keep in mind this is the person who controls your compensation.
We sit down with our CEO for 15 minutes each week to get practical business advice so we can advance in our careers. On this episode, we learn what to do if you disagree with your boss…
- If you have a boss who is unwilling to receive input, don’t put effort into offering it. Focus on learning as much as you can and then go find another gig
- Set aside some time with your boss to discuss your reservations surrounding the business at hand. Say it quickly and persuasively
- Deliver your objections free of emotions
- You can’t throw up a red flag on everything. Choose your battles
