Part III: Communicate with Impact > What is Effective Communication?

Chapter 11. What is Effective Communication?

Sometimes our own feelings of powerlessness or inferiority may interfere with communicating effectively with a boss. These feelings of inferiority can come from past professional experiences, our own parent-child relationship, or the negative things we say to ourselves (“My boss knows a lot more about this than I do—I’m sure my point of view isn’t needed.”) Although you need to have a healthy respect for your manager, it is also important to view your own talents and contributions as worthwhile and important.

If you recognize that it is difficult to talk with your supervisor, plan on ways to counteract those negative emotions. It is particularly important with new bosses to come to the relationship without preconceived notions about what they may be or should be like.
