When called on the carpet, how do you respond to your boss?

Nehemiah was confronting others and "they were silent and could not find a word to say" (Nehemiah 5:8 NASB).

When we mess up and are confronted by our boss, our normal reaction is to be silent. Our silence will be convicting. When confronted, think through the situation, and what you did. If you're wrong, confess your shortcoming, and commit to improve in the future. If you're right, calmly hold your ground, explain the situation, and defend your perspective. Improve your communication by speaking up during tough times.

In the Word

Nehemiah was confronting others and "they were silent and could not find a word to say" (Nehemiah 5:8 NASB).
