Things A Boss Should Never Discuss

They’re the same things that are difficult to discuss in a social situation: Sex, Religion, Politics.

It seems inconceivable that any manager with an IQ over room temperature would know enough never to discuss these issues in the workplace…but they do.

According to, 35% of employees say their bosses make their political beliefs known in the workplace. And 9% of employees say they feel ‘pressure’ to conform to their boss’ political point of view. (9% doesn’t sound like a lot, but that’s the equivalent to about 18 million people!)

DO NOT discuss politics in the workplace. Managers are lured by the power they have into thinking their employees are fascinated by their beliefs. They’re not – they’re just playacting.
(And that goes for religion and sex, too).
