    My colleague is instigating me against our boss

    I am working in a government organisation. Our boss is a very kind hearted person and I hold him in high regard. But from the past few days , one of my colleagues is trying to instigate me against him telling me many bad things about his character. But I am not ready to believe him. How to deal with such a situation?

    First of all never believe on any one until you see things by yourself.

    Secondly it is not your problem to analyse your boss character, either good or bad.

    As you are saying that your colleague is saying such things you can say clearly to him that you are not interested in knowing any thing about the boss,

    and if he is like that it is his personal issue.

    Also you can't do anything if his character is not good so it does not hold any sense in telling you such things.

    Alternatively you can also divert talk in other direction if he comes to this topic again.

    There can be many reasons behind your colleagues such behavior so just avoid such talks and don't listen to him if he insists you to listen as you

    can unnecessarily get into trouble if some body/boss sees you involved in such talks.

    Dear,
    In this world you should believe only on your eyes and your ear. Don'y trust on anyone.
    If you personally find something bad in your boss then it is ok, otherwise don't rely on rumors spread by your colleague.
    And to avoid your colleague ,you should plainly ask him that you don't believe in his words and if he is true then he should show some kind of proof.

    Hope this will help you.

    Hello Aspirant,

    There are the persons who flatter the boss by taking the views about the boss.Your boss might be instigating you against your boss in order to get bad statement from you to tell the same thing to the him in your absence in order to get good name for himself.

    You maintain your good will for your boss.Listen to your colleague,but need not react.You can say him that I don't believe in his such bad character.If you get time,you may report the matter to your boss otherwise leave the matter here itself.

    Many people don't want to work,instead they act as catalyst between others two.The nature is gifted by God & we can not change it.So we should judge the people & behave accordingly.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    First of all don't believe on what others say...back biting is common accross organisations...

    You have to be very concious a little bit...because some humor might be correct in some situation...

    You have to be more cautious now as some rumore is going on on your boss's character....in the organisation theft and character are two main imporatant trait....


    Peope can't be judge immediately... may be what ever the employees are saying regarding your boss is incorrect or might be correct... hence to handle this situation and work with your colleagues and your bosses you have to handle the matter very tactfully.

    Hello,

    You should not listen to him. As long as your boss is friendly towards you everything is fine. You are
    not a moral gurdian to decide which person is good or bad. There are many people like your colleague
    in workplace who does stuff like that just to create a bad vibe in the office. Ignore shuch person and follow
    your heart.

    Bye,
