Q: My boss has a tendency to give his opinions on everything from politics to religion to his bosses. He’s not offensive, just annoying. And I disagree with most of his views. Should I tell him so?

A: No, especially if he’s deliberately baiting you. Arguing over divisive or delicate issues won’t improve your relationship or your productivity, unless you think there’s a good chance he’ll change his mind. Only if he crosses a line and makes a downright offensive comment should you tell him so politely but firmly.
