Letter to the Editor: Boss problems
Just about all of us have had to work for somebody else during our lives. Some of us have even been the boss. Bosses have to make decisions and those under them are generally obligated to obey and follow those directions. Now I don’t know about your experience as the boss but in mine I made a few stupid decisions and came to regret them. The best employees were the ones with courage who would take the risk of warning you that your particular decision was wrong. They were worth their weight in gold. When I was a young Captain in the army commanding a cavalry troop I had the best First Sergeant you could ask for. If I gave orders that were not well considered, he would quietly call me to the side and strongly suggest an alternate solution. He always emphasized that he would follow my orders but that I might consider the consequences that he could see.
