    One of my colleagues always tries to copy our boss in every way possible

    I am working in a government organisation. One of our colleague always tries to copy our boss in every possible way- whether his walk, his talk or the way he writes. I think this is very irritating and he should try to be his own self rather than copying others. How to make him realise this?

    Dear aspirant,

    It is by nature that some people are having habit of imitating others particularly for those who are superiors. By imitating those authorities they might be getting mental satisfaction and happiness in their life. It is losing nothing to others and objection can be raised only by those persons whose imitations are made. The others have nothing to do with that so, you are also one among them. Since by imitating your colleague is not going to be equivalent to your boss but he might be getting mental satisfaction only. Instead of getting irritated, you should enjoy his imitations by making a fun at him. By this means both of you will have better understanding and enjoyable to each other.

    You should always think and work for yourself, your family members and office work which may pay to you to a great extent. Thinking about others will cause you only pain.

    So, take care of yourself.

    Thanks and Good luck

    Helllo,

    In order to make him realise him,you first have to ensure that you share a good bond with him.If not,then even if you try to make him understand your point,he will that it in a wrong way.If you have good rappot with him,you can discuss with him on this issue.The entire mode of communicating must be in a lower tone and straight forward.Or else he might take it otherwise and start arguments which may turn into some thing worse.So you have to act smartly so that he doesnot take it in the wrong way at the same time understands your point.

    Hi aspirant

    It is good to see that you are so concerned about your colleague . You should definitely talk to him if you think that what he is doing is absolutely ridiculous and that he is marring his own personality by that. You should talk to him during the free time and thus give your advice to him. Then only he will relaise his mistake and maybe follow your lead.

    You should tell him that you have been noticing from quite sometime now that he always tries to copy the boss in every possible way- his walk, talk or the way he writes. You think that this is not good for his own development and that he should better try to be his own self rather than copying others. You hope that he will take your advice as you are saying this as his well wisher and don't have anything against him.

    I am sure that your colleague will be able to understand your point and hopefully will do as you say. Good luck and Thanks

    Dear you do not need to make him realize about this because he is on his way and let him do whatever he want and if he wants to be like your boss then you should not interrupt him in his work and let him copy of your boss because all those people who copies someone in their life may never get success that is why one day he will learn it from himself that he is something wrong in someways and this will definitely make him disappointed one day so you should wait for that day and do not tell him anything about this matter and why he copies and also do not try to tell to your boss and if he behaves like your boss then you should behave like a employee of your boss then he will starting understand himself as boss in the company and one day he will behave same with the senior or manager or boss of the company and then he will realize that copy is copy and fact is fact

    All the best
