As my strength, I am a good observer. And I have also critical thinking skills so I analyze the things that is in future it will be good for our company or not.

Then, I was concerned about the idea of our boss.

I would first acknowledge his suggestion as one way of doing things, then share mine as another alternative citing its strengths and advantages but leave my boss an opportunity to either take my option or incorporate ideas as a blend.

Before approaching the Boss, I will analyse the problem related to that idea and try to solve the problem. If don't then I'm going to share the drawback problem related to that idea with the Boss. So, that Boss can rethink and try to solve the problem.

I will give my opinion and if he agrees then it's good and if doesn't we go by his decision. Because experience has its say.

I think I don't have much knowledge and experience at this stage of the job so I would like to give the best advice if I can but if I won't have then I'll leave it to him because he/she must be more experienced than me.

No idea is bad. If boss thinks it's crazy and wants to do it then so be it however I'll give him my perception of stinker thought ina very polite manner and probably make him to rethink his idea.

I would fully support him, as my boss is greater to me in experience and knowledge I would respect his views and support him in reaching his goals.

Well if I think his idea stinks then I would provide constructive feedback to him about improving his idea.
