Q. My boss has a body odor problem and I wonder if I should find some way to tell him. I'm embarrassed when we go on sales calls on a hot day because I'm sure the customers smell him too. It doesn't help close the deal. It helps close the door. I can't handle it in the car either, so something has to be done. I just don't know what.
Ans. You're right that someone must tell him about it, and his bosses probably haven't been on sales calls with him or he wouldn't have that job. Talk to the people in Human Resources. They should have a professional way of handling such personal problems. That's why they're there.
