5 things you should say to your boss today

Published by Business Insider on Fri, 09 Sep 2016

While you may think that you need to tread very carefully with what you say to your boss, you might be playing it too safe.I've interviewed a lot of CEOs over the years, and the majority of them tell me they like to hear often from the people who work for them.This helps them understand and respect their employees more.In short, it's a good thing that you have the courage to speak up, and it canget your boss'sattention in a very good way.Here are five things bosses like to hear:1. "You're wrong"Of course, "you're wrong" doesn't have to be said in a negative or rude manner. It's OKto tell the boss they are wrong, because what it shows them is that you are smart and want to challenge their thoughts on a project or idea.Also, it doesn't have to be said in an argumentative or disrespectful way. All you need to do is say specifically why your boss is wrong and it gives them food for thought. Then when you have the data or examples to back yourself up, you may really impress your boss because they'll see it's not about you undermining their authority.You're simply confident enough to point out something that they may not have been aware of. You've now helped them to know what's going on and offered new information that they can use to make better decisions.2. "No"It's a short thing to say to your boss, and manymay think it's disrespectful or out of line. However, many managers, supervisors, and CEOs like it when an employee tells them "no."Of course, this "no" needs to indicatewhy you are disagreeing with what you're being asked to do. It could very well be that you have to decline because you have a life outside of work and need to get to your son's play or daughter's game. A boss is usually not going to take that work-life balance away from you, and you shouldn't let them if they try.If the assignment or project is something important to the company, then saying no but offering another timeframe when you can do the project is admirable. It tells your boss that you are confident and want to balance your life and unplug rather than become a doormat.3. "Something's wrong, but we are fixing it"No one wants to come to the boss with bad news. However, a leader would rather hear that something's wrong upfront rather than assume that everything is great and then find out later it really isn't.It also seems better when the bad news comes with a solution. Coming up with solutions yourself shows that the team is "owning" the problem and already working to fix it. This should increase your boss's trust in the team.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
