Nunca hagas esto

La pregunta es, ¿Quieres que tu jefe confíe en ti y te delegue más responsabilidad? Primero, ten mucho cuidado a la hora de separar los hechos de las opiniones tanto en tu mente como en tu discurso. Tu jefe quiere conocer primero los hechos y luego tu opinión. Dile las cosas en ese orden para que sepa distinguirlas.

Separar los hechos de las opiniones constituye las bases de un bueno juicio y un buen juicio es, a su vez, el cimiento de la confianza y de la responsabilidad.

En segundo lugar, nunca le digas a tu jefe meras suposiciones si no tienes dos formas de comprobar tus suposiciones. Si sientes que debes especular — plantea tu deseo de investigar o llevar a la práctica lo que sea necesario para que llegues a una conclusión sólida.

Entonces, si especulas, termina tu frase diciendo – “Averiguaré cómo…”

¿Por qué molestarte en investigar las respuestas? Porque así podrás:

  • Descubrir que tú mismo puedes responder muchas preguntas
  • Convertirte en una fuente de energía positiva
  • Tener más seguridad en ti mismo
  • Demostrar que comprendes que tu trabajo no consiste en adivinar sino en resolver los acertijos

Demuéstrale a tu jefe que eres bueno para obtener información, diciéndole la verdad sobre lo que has encontrado y formando opiniones razonables en torno a los hechos. ¡Haz eso y pronto serás indispensable!

  • I learned that at work it is best to keep my opinions to myself, it can save you from opening a can of worms. I witnessed what it is like to share an opinion to the boss. The boss did not share the same opinion, thus causing some conflict between them and their subordinate.

  • This short article reminds me of my relationship with my own boss. When something has been done wrong, she confronts me right away to ask about what happened. At times like these I know that it is best to stick to the facts. There have been times when I have had to make decisions on my own when no higher management is around. After times like these, I have gone up to my manager to first explain the facts of the circumstance that I was faced with, and only after that has been established, then I proceed to tell her what my opinion was, why I took the opinion that I did, and then this way I have justified the actions that I have taken in a professional way. Due to this ‘facts first, opinions next’ strategy, I now have a trusting relationship with my manager and boss and it has built great mutual respect. I agree with what this article has to say, its great advice! 

  • I agree with this! A lot of times we as humans see it through our lens and believe that that is the only right solution, but we don’t take the time to consider the other persons reasons or justifications for doing what they are doing. I agree we need to analyze and observe the whole situation before we go into conclusions or speculations about something because as workers our boss will need an honest and wise answer, but if we always just way what we think without fully thinking about it, then they will never ask for our help.

  • In any job trust and confidence is necessary. Mostly, there is trust needed in the relationship between workers and bosses. Already there is one thing in common that any job has and that is, well, that they are working under a company or person where they are trying to work to be rewarded an earning. Setting standards for yourself is essential and working in an environment with integrity, trust and honesty will prevent any issues. Represent yourself in the highest standards at work and reflect the essential values appreciated at any workplace.
