It's not just regular tardiness and time off that can ruin your relationship with your boss. We will show you exactly which phrases should be avoided when communicating with an employer if you plan to work at your place for a long time.

8 phrases that will ruin your relationship with management

1. This is not my job.

In the age of multitasking and multifunctionality, every employer is trying to save money, of course, on employees. And despite the fact that the phrase itself carries a certain meaning, behind it are categoricalness and outright refusal. If you still want to keep your job, you can take a different, less overt path. If a management request requires additional time and investment, it may be worth discussing how its implementation will affect your salary, that is, translate the conversation into a working format.

2. It's not fair

Some individuals like to seek justice and denounce the opposite. At the same time, they are poorly aware that despite the real existence of injustice, the attempt to prove it in the format of a working relationship looks very naive and childish. If you really think that something affects your personal interests, perhaps you should stock up on arguments and prove yourself right, and not use labels.

3. We've always done this

Not the best argument of an employee trying to prove something to the employer. First of all, this position demonstrates that you are not ready for something new, for experiments and the search for creative solutions, and this is no longer good.There can always be someone in your place who will be happy to find a different solution to this issue.

4. It's not me, it's Lyuba's fault

Another attempt at infantilism , which is unlikely to help you win the sympathy of both your superiors and colleagues. If Lyuba is really wrong, find another way to prove her mistake: letters in the mail, messages in instant messengers - in general, written types of evidence work best as evidence.

5. I quit

Not every employee can afford to scatter such phrases. It is clear that each of us periodically wants to quit, but it is worth expressing such words in front of our superiors.If you really want to leave, look for a place and leave, otherwise this behavior looks like pure manipulation., having heard which, your leadership may well ask you to write a statement.

6. I want to take a day off on Friday, I did all the work

A risky and very frivolous statement that not all employers will enjoy. In response to it, you are guaranteed to find something to do not only on Friday, but throughout the next week. If you want to take a day off, it is better to first ask him, explain the reasons why you need it, and assure the management that all the work will be completed by you on time. This way you will show yourself to be a good specialist, and not someone who only thinks how to take time off from work before the weekend.

7. No problem / I'll try

In some areas, such informal answers to the management will not irritate him, but if such a communication style is not welcomed in your company , it is better to avoid such phrases and respond accordingly to the regulations.

8. I hate my job

It is better to share personal and super-emotional opinions about your work at home with loved ones or in a cafe with friends. But this should not be done in front of bosses and even in the presence of colleagues,because, as they say, the walls have ears too. If you hate what you do so much, a reasonable question arises, why are you here then. Believe me, this reasonable question will surely arise after such a loud statement.
