    My boss wants to take all the credit for a particular project and so wants me to support him

    I am working in a software company. Recently we , a team of 10 members, completed our project successfully and one of our team members made a major contribution in this. But our boss wants to take all the credit for the same and he wants me to support him in this. I am really confused as what to do now. Please guide me in the right direction.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is in practice due to system that the credit goes from top to bottom.Since you are working under your boss,it means you are getting support & guidance from your boss which make you interested to work well,the credit will first go your boss who in turns will give credit all of you.So it is nothing wrong in supporting your boss.If your boss is happy with you all,you can get many good things for good professional career,such as good job appraisal which is needed for your promotion.One day naturally you will also be a boss in your working organisation.

    You can see the example of Indian cricket team,Chief minister,prime minister,head of the office etc.The credit & demerit for good or bad things go to the head respectively,captain,chief minister,prime minister etc.

    So do support your boss in completing the project & if not you all may be blamed for not being success,if the project is not completed in time.

    Thanks & good luck.

    I can understand the situation. It is difficult to go against the boss, but tell him frankly that the project has become successful due to the joint effort of all the members. If you take the credit then it will be injustice for rest of the members. So celebrating the success all together will spread happiness amongst all. Tell him clearly that you don't wish to take the credit all alone. Keep in mind, that if you take the credit all alone then, your team mates will go against you. They wont take it in a positive spirit. So its better not to deprive them from their share of celebrating the success of the project.
