Whatever your feelings toward your boss, the fact is that he or she got to that position because of some combination of experience, expertise, and training. In other words, they earned it. That doesn’t mean you’ll always agree with the decisions your boss makes. Sometimes you’ll even be certain your boss is wrong—either on something small and harmless or much more consequential.
So how do you challenge your boss respectfully and productively? It can be daunting to point out a difference of opinion to someone we report to. Many of us simply aren’t great communicators when it comes to those in higher positions.
But with a little effort and tact, you can disagree with your boss in a way that’s respectful and gets things done.
