Our AB Siva Kumar will agree with my point that the more you say yes to your boss you be more stronger in the organisation. Strong people may appear as if they are right but many times they proved wrong. There are many examples where stronger people lost the game as God is not there on their side.
Someone asked Krishna that Pandavas are very good devotees of you. But why did you made them lose? The reply given is very apt and we all should understand. He will help to the people who asked for his help. Duryodhana asked Sakuni to play as he knows that he was not a good player. But Dharmaja knows that he is a very good player and he can win over Sakuni. That is why he never asked for the help of Krishna. The essence is that strong people may also be proved wrong if they have no confidence in God and who think that they can do anything they want.

Even this challenging situation would ease
A self assertive person assumes himself as prima donna and wants to see everyone as meek if he isn't equal to his status. I always stay away from such people because I can't tolerate their hubris.
One who loves self respect will never stoop before a haughty person let alone being a friend of his.
However, I see some of cunning people having the friendship with them to get ingratituded and use them for their personal gains.
Dr Rao is right that arrogant boss likes sycophant. I know a person who is an account cum cashier in a school. He has been caught purloining the money several times. Staff even principal complained of his embezzlement despite he is still on his post because he is a big sycophant.
Knowledge is power.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
In the case of colleagues or co-workers or even someone in our locality, community, politician or from any organization, then we may have to keep good terms with them due to their power in terms of wealth, support and position. Such friendship may not be of true virtue but only based on points or support. Even they know the truth and would only indulge to show power or wealth.
This nature is seen everywhere from society, institute, organization, company, offices and your locality or society. The people who are wealthy or in power would always try to play the bossy role and would even take advantage of their position or post and make others feel uncomfortable but that is what has been carried on from years. It is always better to keep a hand distance from such people as they are never friends but only want to show their power on others.
