    Colleague always discouraging me to tell my plans to my team leader

    I am working in a software company. We are a team of 5 members working on a project. Whenever I want to give some idea to our team leader and I discuss it with one of my colleagues , he always points out some mistake in it and tells me that the team leader won’t be impressed at all. I think he is always trying to discourage me. How to deal with this?

    If you think your plan is good enough than you don't need to discuss it with your colleague instead you can discuss it with your leader itself.

    You cannot trust your colleague on such things, also every person will have his own view in such things.

    So it might be possible that what your colleague doesn't like your leader could like the same.

    Also it is not worthy to tell your plans to your colleague as it will have no benefit to you.

    If there is any problem in your idea the same thing could be pointed out by your leader.

    But there you will leave an impression on your leader that you are interested in the work and thus you think of improving it by giving your ideas.

    This will show your sincerity and dedication in work to your leader.

    Also if there are some real drawbacks you will be sure about it as it would then be pointed out by your leader and thus you will be able to work on it to

    improve it without having any other thought.

    Hi,

    Go reverse way...don't tell the truth to your friends or don't share the ideas with them for some time...
    Discuss the issue with your team leader due to which the same is impacting to the work you are doing...this needs to be cleared very politely to the team leader..

    You have to make him understand that you are providing good ideas but due to these type of demoralisation you are unable to provide good ideas...

    when you have good ideas on project development its very important that you always open up your ideas add wings to your thoughts then only you could add your impact and develop your career.. don't feel bad but every idea you present to your team leader is not good but try to learn , add more strategy and explanation to your idea which will help the success of your project.. yes your colleague is trying to discourage you, some people don't like to encourage because they will always feel that you will get good impression and importance.. its better that you present your thoughts and ideas with out fear and be confident on your ideas and work all the best sir....

    Dear do not waste your time in thinking about those persons who can not do anything in their life and they always interrupt others in the work so you have to think well about this because this is not a big issue and you will find out this type of peoples in professional arena so you should not worry and just concentrate on your work because if you will not suggest your team leader then how he will think better about you so whenever you think to suggest your team leader about this issue then you should not tell to anyone and directly go to the leader of your team and tell the entire process whatever you want to add in the project and if this will be good then your team leader will accept it but if not then your team leader will reject your suggestions but I am sure your leader will accept and you do not need to share your ideas and thoughts with any other colleagues because you and him both are the similar level and whatever qualities you have, you do for the company on the base of those qualities and your leader is also experienced so he know what is wrong and right so he will decide not others

    All the best

    Hi friend,

    I think you can not share your thoughts with your colleague

    You cannot trust your colleague on such things, also every person will have his own view in such things.

    Thanks!!!
    GOOD LUCK................

    This will show your sincerity and dedication in work to your leader.
