What Do They Really Want?

Early in my career I felt I wasn’t contributing fully if I didn’t give brutally honest feedback.

Even if I was wrong, I felt it would lead to a good discussion and ultimately serve the company.

These conversations were always hard with one boss in particular.  He would rarely take the advice.  When he did, it was tweaked and presented as his.

I now understand he didn’t want honest feedback.  He simply wanted me to echo his position.

Being happy at work depends upon understanding your role and your boss.  Sometimes she just wants a yes man.

This might be right up your alley.  If not, it’s probably time to find something else.
