    My boss wants me to become friends with his nephew, who also works in our company

    I am working in a automobile company. Recently our bossís nephew also joined our company. Now my boss wants me to befriend his nephew as he thinks that I will be a good influence on him. But he is very arrogant and thinks other employees to be inferior to him. What should be done in such a situation?

    Hi Dear,

    You should actually feel proud of yourself that your boss respects and likes you and he feels that you can influence his nephew with your abilities and be a guide to him.

    I understand that like every individual you have an ego and self respect and therefore you are unwilling to befriend the boss's nephew who has an arrogant personality.

    But, let me tell you my dear, as a tree laden with fruit bows down, similarly a person gifted with good qualities always bows down with humility. So, there is no harm in becoming friend with the boss's arrogant nephew and give him your company. This will help you to oblige your boss and also will give you an opportunity to share your knowledge. In case, the nephew does not return your friendship, then after a while you can maintain distance with him, letting your boss know about it.

    Thanks,
    Ritz

    hi
    making friends is a good quality which somehow helps you improving your own personality. Therefore, it is completely your choice that whether you want to be friends with him or not.
    If you are ready to be friends with him then you should go ahead because as he is influenced by you, so you can provide him the best possible and suitable environment to him
    Gud luck

    Ignorance of boss advise is not good.Always obey his words and receive him in a positive way. Understand that he has a good opinion upon you. Dont try to loose it.keep it on. As told maintain a good relation with his nephew also. Though he seems to be arrogant try to keep him in good track with your pleasant and positive attitude.He may certainly turns to understand you all. If not, as expected his behavior keep him long and maintain him just question to answer. Nothing further. He will certainly realize one day. All the best

    Hi,

    You should feel proud for yourself that your boss considers you as a good person with good qualities. But as you said people like you do not make friends with arrogant or bad people. But just do not worry and enjoy the stardom your boss is giving to you.

    Though he is arrogant, you can just talk to him sometimes if chance comes. Do not personally go to him and talk. Being friends is just start talking anywhere and about any matter. You should show friendly behavior towards the nephew of your boss. You just smile at him whenever you come across him.

    He will surely be a nice person towards you because your boss must have told about you to him. So he will atleast talk to properly. It will not be difficult to build friendship with him. If not close friend just be a good colleague towards him. It will be good and fine.


    And also because your boss has told you to be friends with him. You cannot ignore him .You should atleast start talking to him as a friend. If a person improves because of you then it is a great job.

    So move forward and be happy to help others.
    All the best

    You should basically come to feel happy with by yourself that your particular superior values and also loves and the man believes that one could influence their nephew using your ability and stay helpful tips for him.

    I realize that they like every person you have an ego and also self respect and also it will be possible usually are hesitant to make friends with the particular boss's nephew which posseses an arrogant personality.

    However, without a doubt oh my gosh, as a tree filled having fruit bows all the way down, likewise a person gifted having great features generally bows all the way down having humility. Thus, there is absolutely no cause harm to to become pal while using boss's arrogant nephew and also provide him your company. This will aid you to oblige your manager as well as gives you a chance to discuss your knowledge. If, the particular nephew isn't going to return your relationship, and then after some time you'll be able to preserve length having your ex, informing your manager be familiar with it.
    You should come to feel very pleased for yourself that your particular superior considers a person as a great man or woman having great qualities. However as you explained men and women including you never socialize having arrogant or even poor people. But don't concern yourself and relish the fame your manager is actually presenting to you.

    Nevertheless he is arrogant, you can easily speak with your ex in some cases in case likelihood comes. Tend not to privately visit your ex and also talk. Remaining buddies is merely start out chatting anywhere and about almost any matter. You should demonstrate helpful behaviour into the nephew of this boss. You just giggle at your ex each time you discover him.

    This individual will obviously always be a good man or woman in your direction for the reason that your manager have to have advised in relation to that you him. Thus he will atleast speak with properly. It won't be challenging to make relationship having him. If not friend you have to be a good coworker in direction of him. It will likely be great and also fine.

    hello friend

    as your boss wants his nephew to be your friend so you can't help,you would have to help him,as you have to create good impression infront of your boss.
    infact you should feel proud that your boss has chosen you for this,i think that your boss has a trust on you so if you are having much problem then you can talk to your boss politely,i am sure your boss will surely talk to his nephew and he will change his attitude.

    otherwise you do your job and talk with him in a limited manner when only necessary ,your ignorance might also change his behaviour.

    yeah he must be arrogant because he is taking his uncle who is actually the boss to be very much granted.

    Now the situation is that your boss has requested you to be friend with him and you must consider his proposal.

    If you feel that to adjust with that employee is difficult then try not get into very close friends and informal.

    Just remember that , he is the nephew of your boss and this is again a term for you where you should answer the work related question to that nephew , talk politely whenever you guys confront then wish each other.

    Don't go with any kinds of complaints of his to you boss as perhaps the boss would be biased to him.

    just be formal and obey your duty. Dont let him catch any of your negative points . Be careful while speaking in front of him and also always pretend that you dont have any problem with his attitude etc.

    Thank you
