    What should be done when you are afraid to go in front of your boss after messing up the work he gave you?

    I am working in a government organisation. Recently my boss gave me some office related work but I completely messed it up. Now I am very afraid to go in front of my boss as he will be very angry with me. What should be done in such a situation so as to save your skin?

    Hello
    Well no boss gonna attack your skin any ways!
    now jokes apart. but since you have messed up all then have the firm courage to face it as well.

    Perhaps he will scold you and as you said that its your mistake then somewhere yes you deserve it but if you will try escape of your boss then you will be considered as an escapist that would really leave a very bad lasting impression on all your seniors considering you very unprofessional and irresponsible.

    So the best way is face it.

    Next morning go and meet the boss and beg him the next chance to prove yourself and while doing the next project be cautious and in full concentration as well.

    Moreover dont ever feel shy of getting the guidance of the seniors any time. Your agenda is to present the best project no matter who all helped you just the thing is it should be via fair means only.

    so FACE IT.
    Good luck

    Hi friend,

    Mistakes that are the things that are made by the human beings.

    As you have messed up the work he has given to you, you need to face him whatever the consequences may be,

    Because if you are afraid of facing him it would leave a bad impression on you, as it would make your boss believe that you are afraid of facing the truth.

    So be bold what has happened cannot be changed, so face the present.

    Apologize for what has happened and tell him that this mistake would not be repeated by you.

    Tell him why the error or mistake has been happened by you.

    I know that it is not easy to face your boss but you need to do it in order to get success in your next work or job that will be given to you.


    HOpe i have helped you in getting the relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you..

    Hello..,

    You must not have done the work in a messed up way intentionally. If you have realized your mistake , then it is very good. You should not have fear of facing your boss because you deserve a little bit of it.
    But make sure that you don't repeat the mistake again. Tell your boss that you will not give him the chance to scold you again.
    Ensure him that you will learn to work in a proper way.
    Take help from your colleagues in fields you are facing problems.
    Be sincere towards your work.
    Try to gain the trust of your boss again by doing the work properly, coming on time to the workplace, having a healthy relationship with you colleagues.

    Thank you
