Phrases You Shouldn’t Use Around Your Boss

By Gerald Goh

Good communication with your boss is a well-worn cliché, but a particular point bears repeating – there are just some no-go’s when it comes talking with your boss, regardless of whether it’s in a personal or professional capacity.

When your boss asks you out...

Question: I’ve always had a good and perfectly professional relationship with my male boss but lately, he has been dropping by my desk for long chats and asking me personal questions like what kind of flowers I like. Yesterday, he asked me out for dinner. I do enjoy working with him but it is purely because of work. What should I do?

Answer: Poor thing! Being asked out on a date by your boss is one of the toughest stuck-between-a-rock-and-a-hard-place situations one can get into.
