    : Is it right for a female boss to smoke?

    I am working in a software company. We have a female boss and she is a very kind hearted person. But she has one very big drawback i.e. smoking. I donít think it is right for a female boss to smoke as this will set bad example for other female employees as well. Is it right for a female boss to smoke? How to make her realise this?

    Smoking is Injurious to health and this message is advertised on television , radio, and even printed in bold letters on the cigarettes pack.
    Smoking is harmful for both Men and women.

    So, if your boss is doing so, she is causing health problems for her.

    I would suggest that you should not discuss this issue with her.
    Please note till the time she is smoking in the place designated for smoking or smoking area, you cant interfere and tell her.
    Dont try to become her morale gaurdain

    If ever there is some discussion on this topic in your office and your boss is also there than you may say, but in a very polite way

    No it is not at all wrong if a female boss or employee smokes. Because the chain smokers have all their concentration on the cigarettes which they consume. It is harmful to their lives, but it also helps them to keep their concentration maintained for long hours, and if guys can do that why canít the employees?

    Hello,

    Yes, it is right for a female boss to smoke. If a man can smoke in front of his co-workers why
    can't a female smoke in office. It is true that smokeing is injurious to health but that does not
    mean people will stop smoking. You can rather tell your boss that she is injuring her health in the
    long run. That much you can do.

    Bye,

You should have believe and hopes that he will cure quickly.You should discuss some plesure moments with him/her to escape any dipression or problems.So live or behave with them like a friend not an employee.thanks

    In this world of modernization,every individual has some fundamental rights and he/she can exercise it.Nobody can restrict them unless it is found offending and against the clause of the rights.Gone are those days when women were treated below men.In today's world,both me and women have equal rights and equal independence.Women are seen to give equal competition to men in every sphere of the professional world.

    Coming to smoking,it is a personal matter of every individual.There is nothing wrong in the smoking of your female boss just because she is a female.However,it will be wrong if she smokes in the public places especially in the office where lot of workers are working.If she is using her cabin to smoke when alone or some smoking zones of your office,then it is absolutely fine and you cannot as well as should not tell her anything about her smoking.

    Everyone knows smoking is a bad habit.Even it is written on the packets of cigarettes.So,it will be just foolishness to go to your boss and give her advice regarding this,thereby becoming her moral guide.She holds the position of boss and is very well aware of the consequences.So if you go and tell,it might give an outcome of opposite results.You might be asked to mind your own business and concentrate in completing your own tasks rather than interfering in her life.

    Hence do not go for that option.Instead you can treat this matter in a friendly just to give her a self realization.You can have a general talk regarding this with her in some coffee shops or outing.You can discuss how she became addicted to smoking.Try to make her realize about the ill effects and other employees being influenced by this.See her reaction and act accordingly.Do not talk seriously rather go for talks in a light tone mingled with humour.Try to influence her mind in such a way so that she gives a thought to your words.

    Smoking is a drawback for both males and the females remember this.Smoking is never to be encouraged .In fact its not right for anybody to smoke but everyone has a personal life and you cannot interfere in what they are doing you can try telling her in a way that doesn't hurt her.. i think its not your business to deal with habits of any gender, other thing is that she is your boss , they will have some ego and its also justified.. you cannot change others habit, cigarrete company issue some graphics which shows what smoking can do to your health .... don't try to change other habits and don't drag yourself in stupid issues and its better you take some initiative about the harmful effects of smoking one day give a presentation on it on a causal day like on weekends about health sessions... if your boss is intelligent then she takes at least a point from your initiative thank you...
