I was in a recent situation that involved me having to tell someone in a state job position exactly what I thought--my other two options I believed I had were to go over his head and report him for not doing his job, or I had to quit because I would have failed without his follow through. I confronted him but I do not believe he is on my side anymore, he is angry but won't say that. And because of me confronting him, I do not believe he has my best interest at heart, and now ultimately I will still fail. Did I do the right thing? Would you have reported him for not doing his job or would you have chosen to give up instead? Did I have any other options that I am not seeing? This will personally effect my chance of working as a customer call center agent, and I really have worked hard and I want and need the job. It is the small mind, mob mentality thing and he will now tell everyone that I confronted him and what right did I have to do that? Any advice at all on how to confront someone without making them upset or mad? Should I have told everyone but him instead, talked about him and not resolved the issue or waited until it got back to him and then blew up in my face? I am looking to hear how well you handle confronting people--do you confront people? Do you gossip about them instead?
