  • Tyler Peterson thinks this is interesting:

On occasion, a decision or policy will be made that is directly contrary to the opinions you’ve expressed; you’ll be expected to support that decision or policy, and you may even have to implement it. If you don’t already know, ask your boss why the decision was made. Explain to him or her that you would like to understand the reasoning behind the decision so you can better implement it. Find out what important considerations went into formulating the policy and the processes that led to the decision.
