    My boss wants me to back off from heading the foreign trip

    I am working in a software company. Recently my management selected me to head a foreign trip to represent our company in front of some foreign clients. But my boss wanted someone else to head this trip . As he could not get his way , he is now forcing me to back off. How to react in such a situation?

    Hi aspirant

    Your boss has definitely no right to ask you to back off from heading the foreign trip when your management has selected you for that. You should definitely not withstand such injustice and strongly react to this so that your boss realises his mistake and stops tormenting you in such a way. He can't force you in this way and you better fight for your rights. Go and talk to your boss immediately.

    Tell him that your management has selected you to head the foreign trip so why then he is forcing you to back off. If he wants to favour someone else that is his problem and he should not force you in such a manner. Otherwise you will be forced to report to the higher authorities regarding this behaviour of his. You hope that he will not threaten you in this manner again and make peace with the decision of the management.

    I am sure that your boss will feel ashamed of himself and will thus help you out. Otherwise you should compain to the higher authorities. Good luck and Thanks

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations on being selected to head a team in foreign. Since, you have been selected by the management of the company for the above trip, you need not worry for interference of your boss in this matter, if you have a authority letter from the management. In such a case you can just say to your boss the same thing and request him to bless you for your success.

    If you have got the selection letter from your boss and if he has issued you another letter not to go to the above tour, you can meet the head of the management and request to issue you a letter authorising you to go to above tour. If you succeed in getting the letter from the management, you can move happily otherwise condole yourself for next chance.

    Have patience & deal it peacefully.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Dear you have been selected by the higher authorities of your company and you may not change the decision and may not disobey them at all and if you will refuse their order due to your boss then you will loose your image whatever you made in the company yet and your chief of the company will consider you as unconfident person in the company and will not select you again for the same or any other main event that is why you should directly say to your boss that sir I can not refuse the order of the higher authorities and if you want to send someone on my place then you should go to the chief of the company and tell them that you wanna send someone for that trip and this will not spoil the image of both you and me and if I would go and tell them about the situation then they will be angry on me and I do not want to spoil my image in the company and I can not cancel this trip at all

    All the best
