Going overboard to help the boss

by on
in Workplace Communication

How far would you go to help your boss?

Would you take the blame for an error he made? Would you tell a white lie for him? Would you call in a bomb threat?

That’s what Claudia De La Rosa of Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., did in an attempt to delay a flight out of Miami International Airport—so her boss wouldn’t miss it. She called and e-mailed the airport, saying in Spanish that a bomb was on the plane.

The flight was delayed while police searched the aircraft and all the luggage. An investigation, and the IP address of the computer, led police to De La Rosa.

It’s an extreme example, to be sure. But most of us have felt tempted, at some point, to go overboard to help a manager we’re loyal to.
