    Boss wants his employees to listen to classical music

    I am working in a government organisation. Our boss is very fond of classical music and thus he expects his employees to follow his lead and develop interest in classical music. He always keeps on asking us about it.I find it very boring and thus am unable to answer any of his questions. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hello,

    Music brings great joy to our heart and it helps us to forget our worries
    to a great extent. Classical music is a joy for the ear. But if you don't like
    it then you can politely say it to your boss. This will settle the matter once
    in for all. Every person has his or her liking and you just can't force an individual
    to change their liking.

    Bye,

    See your boss have to understand that you this is a matter of interest and no one can impose his interest on others as this will be of no use.

    You have to make clear to your boss that you are not in the league as in future such situation might come that he think that you are not listening to

    him and find his interest boring which can lead to personal issues.

    So it will be better that you make your boss clear now only, you don't need to be direct like you can say politely that you have not such brain which

    can understand such high level music or you can device your own sentence to get rid of this problem.

    Make sure that whatever you say is best so that you can adequately explain your boss and simultaneously get rid of this situation.

    Hi aspirant

    I can definitely understand that you are in a fix here as you don't have any interest in classical music and thus aren't able to please your boss in this regard by answering his questions. If you really want to impress him in this reagard, then you should start developing some interest in it . I am sure with time you will start finding it interesting and will have no problem . you may find it boring now but if you start taking interest in it, I am sure you will become very fond of it. Then your boss will be mighty pleased with you and you may even become his favourite.

    And if you really think that you don't want to give it even a try then its upto you and you should stop thinking about it. Otherwise if you keep thinking about it it will also affect your work performance and then your impresssion on your boss will further go down. So you should simply keep quiet when your boss asks you anything about it and he will eventually understand that you don't have any interest in it.

    so friend the decision is yours. I hope that you take the best decision. Good luck and Thanks

    Dear friend listening classical music it is your boss's hobby so you never go to discourage your boss.Indeed classical music is not a bad hoby for any one so your boss can give you advise to listen classical music.In reality it has the merit to get entertainment alone or to get peace in mind music alway's play's an very important role .Even many claim music reduces tension/blood pressure etc.As you are young and have no interest to the Indian classical music you must not go argue about this matter.You should tell favouring him, and must tell yes sir classical music is not a bad hobby I always try to listen as this the music can give peace of mind.

    This peace of talk must not harm you rather you will get good favour from your boss.As you know music lover is always' ahead.

    Thank You,

    Dear Aspirant,

    I think there is very less work in your office.That is why your boss is interested to listen to classical music for himself & to all of you.The interest varies from person to person & it develops with environment & surroundings in which people grow up.

    So whenever your boss asks you to listen the classical music,you can either support his interest or you can say that I am not much interested in classical music,because I spent most of the time where local music is dominated which makes me favourite the same music.

    Also I would like to try my level best to develop interest in classical music as per your direction.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Dear if you really do not like Classic music then you do not need to listen to it because when you are not interested in any work then you should not do that and not accept that at any cost and if your boss comes to you and ask about the classical music then you should directly say that sir I do not like this type of classic songs at all because I like other type of music in my life and that music is enough good for me and for my mind and I you won't mind then you may also listen to that music and if your boss say that you should take interest in listening this music then you need to suggest your boss to take interest in your favorite music and try to give something different language songs to your boss and tell him that sir I like this type of music to keep my mind fresh and fully active all day and if you like then you may also listen to this music and if you do not like then ignore as I do with classic music then your boss will understand

    All the best

    hi friend .. Yes some time we have to face this type of problem in our life. So your boss wants’ to you and your employee mate to listen the classic music rather than your choice of music. Now what you have to do is that firstly you’ll when your boss is entering in your room then treated him/her that you are busy to listen the classic music and you don’t have a time to talking on any type of gossiped. After that when the boss is gone pull out of the classic phobia from your brain and just work what’s you wants’ to be done.. After some time the boss is did not asked any type of question on classic music..
    Thanking you hope you like my suggestion….

    Hello..

    Friend , its not always bout making your boss happy. If as a boss he is saying you to listen classical music then its not like that he is forcing you. If you like anything , you will automatically suggest others, think about it like if you like any movie , you will definitely say to your known people to watch that movie and may be they will not like that. So my friend its not like that he is forcing you to listen classical music, if you are finding it boring then no need to be aggressive about it , just go to your boss and appreciate him about his choice and tell him frankly and humbly that you are having no interest in classical music , and i am sure if you will be humble and clear he will surely understand you.

    Thanks.
