Mum’s the word

by on
in Workplace Communication

Q: A consultant interviewed me yesterday and asked sensitive questions about whether I like my boss, my job, etc. I didn’t tell the truth because I don’t want my words to come back and haunt me. Was that OK?

A: If you flatter a bad boss or a dysfunctional company, you may miss a chance to influence events positively. On the other hand, you don’t want to come off as a complainer who takes cheap shots. In the future, keep the conversation focused on your work and leave it at that.
