    Not comfortable with the accent of my team leader

    I am working in a software company. We are a team of 5 members. Actually our team leader has a different accent and thus most of the times I fail to understand what he is saying and thus am unable to carry out his orders. I feel shy in asking him to repeat it again. How to deal with such a situation?

    See you can't be shy as for following the orders properly you need to understand them first.

    In India due to various cultural backgrounds there is so many diversity.

    He also will have same problem as you are from other background he too also like you many others which he has to deal every day.

    So if you will ask him again if donot understand any thing and explain him that due to his accent you are not able to understand than he will definitely

    understand you situation.

    Also if you do a mistake than it will be a much problem for him rather repeating you something which you didn't understood.

    hello,
    please dont get shy in this type of situations.be brave and ask him to repeat once again as this is your career and you will be efficient if you understand the problem completely and try for a solution.
    as you entered into a proficient job its your duty how to get mingled with your group and no one will help you in this situation.so first be cool and think for sometime and go to your team leader and say your situation .if your team leader is good enough to understand your situation then you got your solution and if not then learn from other team members to explain you what he said.
    thank you..............
