Q. How to inform my coworker that s/he has bad breath without permanent damage?
A. This is very common question asked by many people, but few of them can clearly communicate the message to their colleagues. It’s a challenge to effectively address without doing any permanent damage to your colleague’s ego, your relationship with him/her, or both. To make it worse if the colleague is your boss- there’s not much you can do about it without putting your career at risk.
- Casually offer some gum, mints, or breath strips. If s/he says, “No, thanks,” don’t give up.
- Make the suggestion the next day and again in a week or so. (But please don’t push it too much) —If this doesn’t work-try different strategy.
- Limit interactions with the colleague
- If you cannot do step #3 than you have to confront the issue
Please note don’t be rude or mean when confronting the colleague regarding bad breath. Remember they may or may not know and also please keep in mind they may or may not have tried various steps, but they may or may not have faced success in getting rid of the bad breath.
Be a listener and a friend to them by not blaming them but making sure that they can count on you to support them. It is extremely important if they know that you are their, it can create strong relationships, trust, and believe it or not it can provide motivation both ways!
Q. How to inform my friend/date that s/he has bad breath without permanent damage?
A. There are several things you can do, it really depends on what level of trust and relationship you are with the individual(s). Best way to go about is:
- Offer gums/mints
- Share personal “bad breath” moments about yourself
When you do these steps in any order, the person will realize without being offended and may also feel thankful that you mentioned to them, without embarrassing them.
