Things You Should Never Say to Your Boss - Part 1

Saying the wrong thing to your boss can really damage your career.
From refusing to work with a colleague to bragging about your
irreplaceability, here are 10 things you never want to say to your

    1. "Can you write that down for me?" When you're talking about the
details of a project, writing notes to consult later is great. But you
need to take them yourself, not ask your boss to do it for you.

    2. "I just booked plane tickets for next month." Never book time
off without clearing it with your boss. There might be a major project
due that week, or she might have approved others to have that time off
and therefore need you around. Check with her first before you do
anything irreversible.

    3. "My bad." There's nothing more frustrating than an employee who
has made a mistake and doesn't seem to think it's a big deal. When you
make a mistake, take responsibility for it, figure out how you're
going to fix it, and make it clear that you understand its
seriousness. Responses like "my bad" sound cavalier and signal that
you don't take work seriously. Don't use it for anything other than
the most minor mistake (like spilling something in the kitchen, which
you then promptly clean up).

    4. "I can't work with Joe." Refusing to work with a colleague is
an unusually extreme statement and may mark you as difficult. Instead,
try something like, "I find it hard to work well with Joe because of X
and Y. Do you have any advice on how I can make it go more smoothly?"

    5. "I don't know what you'd do without me." No one is
irreplaceable, even the head of your company. Statements like this
mark you as a prima donna who feels entitled to special treatment ...
and will make a lot of managers want to show you that you're wrong.
