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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
