do you argue with your boss or superior most often? is it rude to that even if you speak in a nice, polite way? i often find myself arguing with my boss as i think he is breaking his own rules. it's hard to work with somebody like that. but i can always get away with telling him what i think, in a very nice way, and most often, he is appreciative of that. is it good to argue?

I think its ok within reason...i have pretty much lost respect for my boss since i have caught them in lies once too often... after all, if you don;t stand up for your rights and principles, who will???

thank you. it's frustrating though if you lost respect for your boss and you still work with them.

never try to argue, also don't try to correct in front of other people, even if in a polite way. try to keep a good contact with him and then we can indicate his mistakes in a nice way without knowing others, and this would keep the atmosphere better.

thank you. you've got a point there. but what if he corrects you in front of clients? some bosses just say sorry for the heck of it, but never means it. but yeah, be polite and professional as what they say.

I can't recall ever actually arguing with my boss, but there have been times when I've disagreed with him and asked if I might make a point, which normally ends up in debate and problem-solving discussion, rather than an argument. I think they often welcome opinion from their staff, and it helps them to figure stuff out. Brightest Blessings.

if all bosses are like your boss, then the world would be a much nicer place, LOL!! some agree to disagree, but they still won't do anything about it.
