    One of my colleagues is taking credit for my ideas

    I am working in a government organisation. Recently I had some ideas regarding the prosperity of our organisation and I discussed them with one of my colleagues. I was very shocked when I came to know that the next day he gave all those ideas to our boss and took all the credit. How to deal with such unfairness?

    These kind of situation happens with everybody in the professional life so the better thing is that you should never discuss the good ideas with your colleagues because they are always there for stealing your ideas and implementing it with their boss, to deal with sucha situation you should always discuss the wrong ideas with your colleagues and let them implement with the boss this will reduce their interest on your ideas and you can directly speak with the manager about all your ideas. Hope you understand. You need to be tricky with your colleagues and never give them the chance to steal your ideas.

    Dear Friend,

    I appreciate you and congratulate you on thinking about your organisation and having some useful ideas for its growth, as most of the employees think only about themselves and keep their interests above the organisation.

    In your professional life you should be a bit diplomatic especially with someone who is of cheap mentality. It was very unacceptable behavior by your colleague to get the ideas from you and tell it to boss just to make his impression temporarily. But, by doing this he lost your faith. You should not worry by this and let it effect your work and motivation level, you will get an opportunity to make him realize his mistake. You should also wait for the right time to tell your boss about his behavior.

    Now onwards you should not commit this mistake. I mean you may share your ideas with your colleagues but only partially and only for the purpose of getting their opinions on it and strengthen it. Along with that try your best to keep a healthy relation with your colleagues and your boss.

    All the best!!!

    Well dear this type of situation comes with so many people in organisation.the best thing which you can do is not to talk about any idea with your colleagues in your organistation and any idea which you get you should directly talk about that with your boss.if you do this then you will be able to get the credit of that idea.thank you

    Dear first of all I would like to suggest you to go to your boss and ask them that what you have got from that employee because I have given him all those ideas that he has provided you about the business and you should not think that it was his own thinking about the business because he copied all my thoughts and tricks about the profession and took the advantage and if you do not believe then you should call that one and ask that from where he got these good ideas and your boss will call him in front of you and he will be unable to tell a lie when you will be present there with your boss and your boss will understand that actual thing and if that employee forgot to tell all the ideas then you should complete that in front of the boss so this will be good for you and you should talk to him too because he stole your all thoughts and strategy that should be followed in business and tell him to never do it again

    You also should be careful and keep your all details confidential in the business world and try not to share with anyone excluding the boss so this may keep your good in the company

    All the best
