Dealing with tough bosses takes tact


My boss wants me to do things which go against my values – borderline lying, aggressively chasing sales or even taking other colleagues’ ideas for my own. I have voiced my opinions in a very careful way so as not to offend him, but it’s getting more difficult. His aggression has already earned him troops of enemies. I don’t want to bypass him and complain to the management, but it’s such a dilemma that I don’t know how to win this fight. What is your suggestion?
