    One of my colleagues want me to challenge our boss to a game of chess

    I am working in a government organisation. Our boss is very fond of chess and thinks that he is unbeatable at that.I am also very good at it and so one of my colleagues want me to challenge our boss to a game of chess. But I am afraid that this can cause trouble for me. What to do in such a situation?

    Hello Friend,

    Well, if you are good at chess then you can always play with your boss. But you should play as friendly game and not as a challenge. You have to work under your boss so you should not do anything that can hamper your relationship with him. Many people are tend to love their ego and nothing else. If your boss belongs to that category then you should not challenge him in game of chess. You don't have to prove anybody that you are good at chess. Sometimes it is much better to hide some qualities within yourself for good reason. The ball in on your court and you have to decide what is best option for you.

    Bye,

    It makes no sense by playing a game of chess with your boss and concluding yourself that you will win against your boss before the game shows your over confidence and its not a thing to fear.. This is very silly that by playing chess will make your boss angry upon you if you win...and its a game of chess its all about decision making and making the move at right time.. The game of chess will improve your presence of mind makes you active all day.. Now your boss is thinking that he is un beatable fine don't disturb his self feeling he might be best at chess but even your good at it not the best but its the game that you will play that will decide who has played a good game its not the question who is best and who is not... Its good that you do have a game of chess with your boss there is no harm in playing a game be sportive and remind yourself that he is your boss when ever you win don't try to feel off so much praise your boss by telling that he needs to learn from boss by telling this even though you win he thinks that you have learned from him.. This is the way great players will win others hearts.. Make the opportunity of playing chess with your boss a chance to learn right decision making the important steps you take take only the game and not the fact that who is great at it even vishwanath anand lost games to small players ... The question is you should win and loss to learn.. This is good way of learning no matter what you do or play chess... It would be a chance to remain in good books of your boss.. The speculation and negativity in the above statement of yours is why do you think bad about your boss and who knows if you win he will appreciate your play be positive and be calm and attitude should attract your boss in making you unique among other employee all the best..

    Hi Dear,

    I don't see any sort of difficulty arising for you if you play a game of chess with your boss. Do not aim at defeating your boss in the game but just play in a sporting manner. It should actually be a healthy competition and an interesting game. In fact, convince your friend as well that a game is played only for fun and not to nosedive any individual.

    In addition, you gain a lot when you are playing a game. It not only entertains you and the audience but also teaches you how to remain mentally balanced. In fact, you will notice that this game of chess between you and your boss will also help in breaking the ice between you guys and nurture friendliness between both of you.

    Henceforth, I would suggest you to invite your boss for this game of chess and without thinking of winning or losing the game, play it for fun and whatever may be the results, forget as the game ends.

    Wish you luck!
    Ritz

    Yes, You are right... In my suggestion you must not challenge your Boss....It doesn' t means that you can't beat him...It means you have no need to challenge your Boss...

    Because it really affects your job...may be your Boss can be angry or may be your colleage want to play any trick with this... So you just keep away from this.

    Yes, if simply you want to play with your boss then its ok...but don't take it as a challenge..

    Hello this is indeed a good challenging item, eg sport it is very fine. When your boss is fond of chess then you acquaint with the boss directly and inform him about your expertise in chess.And gradually you can give your invitation that sir, you are unbeatable player here, but I swear I will beat you here, this is my word.Will you compete with me in front of our chess interested colleagues.I think your boss as a player will accept your challenge, also keep promises sir if I beat you then you should give a party among our colleague again if you beat me I will conduct a party.

    Effectively, in case you are great at chess then you could constantly perform together with your boss. But you ought to perform because friendly recreation and not being a challenge. You have to do the job beneath your coworkers hence you can't do anything whatsoever that can limit ones romance having him. So many people are have a tendency to love its confidence and zilch else. In case your supervisor is part of that will type don't difficult task your pet in bet on chess. You don't have to prove anyone that you're great at chess. Is simple a lot better to conceal a number of qualities in just your self completely reason. Your tennis ball in for your court and you will need to make a decision what exactly is smartest choice regarding you.
    I don't see any type of problem coming in your case when you perform some sort of bet on chess together with your boss. Will not target conquering your coworkers amongst players but merely perform in a very donning manner. It ought to often be a good opposition and a intriguing game. The fact is, persuade ones good friend too that will an activity is played just for pleasurable and to not ever nosedive every individual.

    Additionally, you receive a good deal if you find yourself playing some sort of game. The idea not merely entertains your target audience but in addition demonstrates to you ways to stay psychologically balanced. The fact is, so as to this bet on chess involving you and the supervisor will even help out with revealing the its polar environment involving an individual fellas and feed friendliness involving each you.

    Henceforth, Chance to find the an individual to ask your coworkers because of this bet on chess and without the need of considering winning or losing the experience, listen to it just for fun and whatsoever would be the effects, forget because the experience ends.
    this is truly a great hard product or service, for instance sport activity it is quite fine. Once your supervisor is attracted to chess then you definitely acquaint with the supervisor immediately and explain to your pet of your expertise in chess.And little by little you may allow ones invites that will mister, you're unbeatable participant here, yet I maintain I'll defeat an individual here, this is my own word.Will an individual be competitive with me when in front of our own chess fascinated colleagues.I feel your coworkers because a person encourage ones difficult task, furthermore continue to keep claims mister when I defeat then you definitely you should supply a get together between our own colleague once again when you defeat my family I'll execute some sort of party.

    • Playing chess with your boss is not a big issue but it must be played in friendly manner.
    • You must play just for enjoying not being aggresive to beat boss.
    • Even i recommend you to stay away from playing chess with boss.
    • Many people have tendancy that they can't bear their loss so if anyone beat them they may react negatively and in that case it's good for you.
    • It mainly depends upon the nature of person, if your's boss behave friendly with you then you can play otherwise stay way.

    Hello Aspirant,

    Yes,it is possible to defeat your boss by your colleague,because chess is a game of mind & practice.In game any one defeat any one.

    you should not fear for it because game is play of win or run.Only three things are possible in game,one is victory,second is defeat & third is draw.So those who play game may get any of these three.

    So one should have dare to play any game.

    Thanks.
