    Very strong reaction from the boss on my helping one of my colleagues

    I am working in a government organisation. Recently I helped one of my colleagues as he was facing a lot of trouble in his work. But my boss reacted very strongly against the same and shouted at me for helping him. The boss has already told him to show a drastic improvement in his performance within a week. What should be done to set things right in this case?

    Hi,
    As you mention that your boss reacted very strongly with you, so you have just one solution;
    1. Do not help that candidate too much because it also affect your professional relationship between you and your boss.
    But suggest that colleagues outside the office timing and from this solution your boss also not shot and you can also help your colleague. Because in life each and every person have bad days and also some have good days.

    Hello,

    It is not that things are not located in its place. The fact is that it requires some sort of re-alignment. You should help your colleague if he/ she is in trouble. But it should not be such that you are doing the job which he is supposed to do by himself. You can show him the direction to come out of the situation, but you are not supposed to anything on behalf of him. If you do so, then the person will have a tendency to get things done by you. He will never learn to do handle tough situations. This will spoil his career. I think as a colleague you will never want his career to be at stake! So let him do things alone. I support what your boss has said to you. He is correct. He has just warned you, so disobeying it wont be a good option. Talk to your colleague personally and support him so that he gets the energy to work better !

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is necessary to stand alone in the professional career in order to perform the duty.Of course one can discuss any problem with the colleagues & get tips & guidance from the colleagues,but it is not good to be dependent.
    It is true that all are not having equal capability & it is the social responsibility to help others,but in manner.

    So you should not mind your boss's shout.You can help your colleague secretly.You can ask him to try first his own & correct his mistake.He will apply his mind & learn something.Slowly he will be able to perform his duty alone.

    Thanks & good luck.

    It is good to help the person who is in trouble.A real friend is one who help in the time of need.I think you are a good friend to him.You boss asked your colleague to show the improvement in his performance with in a week.We show some improvement in one but how can we get the drastic improvement in performance.So,you should help your friend.Even your boss become angry on you.Give tips to your friend to improve his performance well.Tell him not to get disappointed motivate him tell the subjects to him.If you help in small things he can grasp and can do his job well.
    all the best
    thank you

    Hello,
    as your boss shouted at you should do following things...
    1) Learn the hard way or Just Listen
    2) Everyone can make mistakes but not everyone dare admit that they did.You should admit your mistake.
    3) You should not assume responsibility for another persons job.
    4) You can improve your current job (such as being the right-hand man or the guy who gets the best assignments).
    5) You can be transferred into a new, better job.
    Thank you.

    None of the things can be set right at this time because you did something that you shouldn't have done and this is all because your boss gave a person enough time that is for 1 week to complete works and show drastic performance in the company among all employees so according to the condition only the employee is responsible to complete his own work and during this time no one can help him because boss gave him personal instructions to complete work and show better performance so he was the only one who got the duty and you interfered in his duties and just went there to help him in completing work so this is against the rules of the boss because whatever happen in the company no body should have very close relations with any employee because sometimes our relations becomes burden on us in professional arena so think about it

    When you have helped your friend so you should accept your mistake because help is at its place and you can help others while this time but the mistake is that you did it during to the period that was decided only for him so he got help and completed his work with your assistance and that is why boss could not analyze and observe the performance of that employee that he wanted before and you interrupted boss while this time and your boss will be very angry on you over this accident so you should go to the boss when they are free and share your personal feelings

    Say sorry to your boss first and promise them that the same thing will never happen again in future so your boss will be satisfied with your argument and promise and think positive about you and go to that friend whom you have helped then say to him that say sorry to the boss from both side that you required help by me and I did that so you should go to the boss and say sorry because they scolded me in front of everyone that I can not tolerate so please go and share that shouldn't you have done and also request him to not ask you for help again because this is profession where we should think only about personal then nothing because if we are helping someone then career is being grown of your friend not yours so think and analyze

    All the best
