Battling the boss

Battling the boss

Wayne Rooney has fallen out with his boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, in a very public way. Kipp takes a look at what to do when you fall out with your superior.

Wayne Rooney may yet have the consolation of a lucrative contract with Manchester City, but the Manchester United striker cannot be enjoying his present situation. One of the world’s most famous soccer players, Rooney is no stranger to confrontation on the pitch, but he’s picked a heck of a battle off it after falling out with his just as famous, notoriously ruthless manager, Sir Alex Ferguson.

As mentioned, Rooney may find himself with a fat contract at any number of clubs when all this is played out, but the rest of us don’t have that luxury when we fall out with our boss. In fact, for many of us a conflict with the boss can be a real career threat. So what do you do? Kipp has rounded up the best tips from the internet and a few thoughts from our own experience (that we’ve tried to forget). Here’s our list of seven things to do once you’ve fallen out with the big man or woman:

1.       Act Quickly. Trust us: the longer you let things stew between the two of you, the worse it will get. Although addressing the issue may take a lot of guts, acting promptly reflects positively on you and mitigates the possible damage.

2.       Choose the right place. Rather than have it out in a hallway, at your boss’s desk or (worst of all) over e-mail, ask your boss if you can meet in private. Meeting away from everyone else, either in a separate room or in a coffee shop, will allow you the privacy and time to be as thorough about as you can be and will hopefully be conducive to conflict resolution. In the event that you think your boss would much prefer a public apology, you may have to comply.
