Most of the times he may be right. But sometimes he may be wrong too. When he is wrong, we can explain him about that. It also help to be a good sub-ordinates to our boss. This is my thinking. What about yours?

Sure. This helps in development of participative working environment. You have full authority to apply your human brain when discharging duties. and at times, you need to make your boss understand your point. But while doing so, you must be courteous and respectful towards your boss. And if he/she inclines to a decision - it is always preferable to accept that whole heartedly. This helps in reducing conflicts.

I don't believe it . It seems to me as if this sentence was given by a boss.

First thing to note that how the boss reacts when you say he or she is wrong. If the boss is a short tempered person better not to tell it. Also it is better to tell in a sweet way or when he or she is alone than in front of the subordinates. Most times even when we know our boss is wrong we have to agree for the better future of ours.

I have to admit that it's true. No matter how unreasonable your boss is, he is always right. If you don't agree with him, that's alright. You will be fired. I don't think he will ever admit that he is wrong. I love China

Yeah. The Boss is usually right. He keeps us all right, but sometimes they can have a bad day and stuff and take it on on the workers.

if he is wrong on an area that you have expertise on maybe, because it all depends on the boss, some will fire you for saying they are wrong, but if it is an area that you know nothing about but think you have better ways of doing things, many times that backfires and you end up fired.

No one no matter who it or they are is always right all of the time. Yes, we must take it upon ourself to explain what is wrong in any event taking place in any situation.

Well, definitely a boss is human. So they have the right to have a mistake so . . it is better for us to remind them that they may sometimes be wrong and may need to have a reminder for the correct information.

Hello. Everybody makes mistakes. Just because he is a boss, does not means that he knows everything. It means that he knows a lot, of course, or at least should mean that he has a lot of experience in his area. However, as every human, a boss also makes mistakes. And a great boss should learn how to accept suggestions by others. Specially by his employees. The employees have a different view than him. They are able to see clearer what is going wrong. A good employee will know how to improve his company. He will know what can be increased and enhanced. Those suggestions should be passed to the boss. The good boss should accept them and value them, to see if they are worth. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

Hi coolmailraj, That is a good idea but be careful because some bosses don't like being told they are in the wrong and may take affence. Tamara

I guess this depends on the Boss, some are open to other opions others have to be right even when they are wrong. You always have to remember who pays you.

A good boss rightfully demands respect from his employees, which means giving him the benefit of the doubt on whether he is right. However, a good boss also realizes that he/she is human and therefore CAN make mistakes now and then. They will also keep an open ear on this and listen to their employees who should be able to approach the boss and point out when they think the boss is wrong. A good employee will only point out mistakes after they are certain that is indeed a mistake, and they will do it tactfully and respectfully. This kind of employer/employee relationship is optimum. Unfortunately it's not found too often.
