HK ppl's culture... my ABC boss don't understand

there is a arrangement happen in my dept and such arrangement shoudl affect most of or all of the colleauge, my boss knows that most of us will have concern, or some of us might even look for a new job...
my boss express such concern to dept head and dept head held a dept meeting... finally, dept head ask all of us if we have concern about the new arrangement, and , as the custom of HK or Chinese ppl have, no question is good question, we kept silence, think ourselves for what the arrangement implies, and ppl start thinking about the "next step".

my boss asked me why none of us ask any question or express our concern. since i m ok frd with my boss, i told my boss this is the culture of not asking and even in the lecture in school, we always dont ask question.... my boss was upset because the dept head will think my boss is the trouble maker while no one have concern at all...
is that hk ppl custom not good, or my boss is too innocent while we are just protecting ourselves :P

Well, [color=#ff0000]if [/color]the arrangement absolutely implies a reduction of headcount in the future, what can you say??
"Please dun fire me" ?   Or   "Why are you doing that to us"?
This is just stupid.

If you ask questions like "What are the purposes of the change"
The boss will give some rubbish answers like "To improve the efficiency of use of resources", "To facilitate the communication and interaction between two departments" ..........  blah blah blah.






Your colleagues didn't say anything cuz it wouldn't make any difference. They prefer to "save some gas to warm their tummy" :smile_30:

"the no question is a good news" culture is posing a threat, especially when someone is trying to rearrange the current office practices. Simply, no one is providing feed back to the coordinator  of the current change in situation . And by the time somethings bad happens it will be too late for the coordinator to provide the users any solutions. This is the reason I think why the dept head is upset about, because he/she knows there is no perfect plan and there must be some flaws that require you, the end user to reflect.

very common in Chinese culture,  when the boss ask the employee's opinion, he doesn't really want the employee's opinion, it's f'king show;

if some dumbass actually asked, the boss would give him some rubbish answer, and then make him look bad in the spot.

that is why nobody would like to say anything in a meeting.

like upstair said, save some air the warm the tummy:smile_30:

This is not "culture".  This kind of attitude is considered negative.  I would not like this kind of colleagues/staff.
