I have an issue with a situation that happens a lot of the time. When I converse with my boss, he sometimes misunderstands some point in the discussion and talks from that point of view. However if I want to correct him, he mistakes my intention and thinks that I am confronting, countering or against his opinion.
In that situation, what is the right way to politely address the issue and stress the importance of my point. Currently, I am using the following sentence before making my point:
I am not against your point or countering your idea
However even with this I could not make him listen to me. Instead, it makes the situation worse.
I doubt my language, probably the sentence and the way I putting it forward is not good enough to convince higher officials.
Is there any alternate that I could do, which would be polite and at the same time effective to make him listen as well?
