We know it is really hard to correct or even comments about the work of the person who got a higher position than us. Or even to those persons who are senior in service in an organization. It feels like who are you to questions on the things that they used to do for such a long time.
We all know that sometimes, some boss tend to sign the papers without reading or understanding what they are signing. They gave trust and confidence to the staff doing the paperworks for them. Without knowing that sometimes things are no longer right.
Some of us are actually afraid to correct or questions things even if we know that we are in the right position for we might offend people. Even if our intention is good it might be misinterpreted by the person concerned. And so we just let things passed and let the higher in authority find it and be the one to correct it.
But there will come to the point when you are required to correct them because your attention is called by higher authority to do it specially if material errors was previously done. Because even simple addition and deduction were not properly done.
What should you do? How are you going to say it knowing that this particular boss got an image of not accepting correction from a person who is lower in position?
