    Unable to express myself in front of my manager

    I am working in an automobile company. Our new manager is very strict and so I am very afraid of him. Also his looks are very intimidating. So whenever I want to tell him something regarding my work, I always get very nervous and am unable to express myself. How to overcome this problem?

    Hi friend

    I think you should not get demoralized by this problem you are facing and try to fight this problem until you win over it. Dont let anything suppress you and always be positive. If you think your manager is very strict and intimidating, then you should not be afraid of him rather take it as a challenge and thus face him with guts. Its your nervousness which is your biggest problem and not the manager's strictness. Maybe you have always been a nervous individual getting easily intimidated by others and that drawback of yours is now coming to the forefront and thus creating problems for you. Maybe you have not realized this and are thus thinking your's manager fear to be the real problem.

    But if you have always been brave and courageous so then their is no problem. Just have some confidence in yourself and I am sure you will easily able to express yourself more clearly in front of your manager.Take the fear of your manager's strictness and loks out of you and then you will see how you turn over a new leaf. I am sure your manager is not that hard hearted as he looks from outside and is surely soft from inside as is the case with most of these people. Once you try and succeed in expressing yourself in front of him you will easily be able to build a goosd rapport with him and thus be able to come into his good books. Then you will not at all be afraid once you become pally with him.

    I hope you understand my point friend. Try and try until you succeed. Good luck

    hello friend...........

    This is very common thing in every one life but as you are advanced so you have to remove your fear from your mind. For this you have to pressure more in your work and express this in front of mirror because when you speak in front of your manager it will give you some confidence. but always remember one thing that dont under your eyes when you speak to your manager because if you lie down then some negative idea will born in your manager mind. so always tried to head and try to free your mind from any nurviousness.

    Thank you.

    This is a common problem seen in the schools where students fear the strict teacher and hesitate while speaking infront of him.It is also prevalent in the professional especially when one gets a very strict and stern boss or employer like in your case.However this type of problem should be eradicated as soon as possible from the professional life.

    If not eradicated,it can create various problems for you and your future professional career.It can create a lot of problems in your work and hence your performance will be affected.Communication with boss is essential to uplift one's professional career.Hence you have to aim at removing this fear from your within and strive hard for this goal.

    You should also try to understand the mentality of your boss.He has to handle the high pressure in the professional arena and thus wants perfection in the work under him.Hence this tension and pressure and also desire to achieve success is compelling him to behave in such a way.You should accept this with a good spirit and work hard to achieve success and perfection.

    There is no room for fear or nervousness in the professional sector.You have to get rid of your fear or nervousness rather than getting depressed to achieve success.In this case the only suggestion would be to interact with your boss more and more and that too professionally and for professional needs.You can also approach him for personally but persons in this position generally put a line between their personal and professional life.

    Hello,

    I can understand your problem.You have to make the situation easy for you,so that you can analyse your problem and derive solution out of it.First of all,you have to keep in mind that if you are not been able to express yourself properly then it may put you in trouble regarding your work.If you cant express yourself then inspite of having potential you will not get recognition which you deserve.Give yourself time,and try to express yourself.Initially you will face trouble,but gradually I think you will be able to overcome it.

    Dear Aspirant,

    You should build up your mind high by thinking postive aspects of any matter.Your manager is also a human being & you are also.Of course some people is an angry man & some is a polite one.But the angry man is more helpful & useful in some aspects than the polite persons.In general,the angry man does not harm others in pen & paper & he shows his angriness to others by shouting & threatning.

    You should think yourself as an important person & you can think tomorrow you will also be a manager in the same or other company.Also you should develop your knowledge in your subjects ,fields & in behaviour.Also you should concentrate in developing your communication skills so that you develop your confidence level high.You should practice yourself to explain myself whenever you find time.Slowly you will be bold enough to face any problems.Also you should slowly know the administrative points for service.

    Thanks & good luck.
