in Career Management,Workplace Communication

Q: I’m worried that my boss is planning layoffs and I’m on the list. I don’t have proof, just a hunch. Should I confront my boss?

A: “Confront” is a strong word. Why not engage the boss in a friendly, big-picture discussion and seek career advice? Don’t be accusatory, saying, “I think you know more than you’re telling me.” Instead, bounce around ideas for the future, including different skills you should develop or projects to embark on. The boss’s reaction will help you assess what’s up.
