When coworkers steal your ideas, that's one thing. It's a more difficult situation when your boss takes credit for your ideas. Business magazine Fortune suggests a couple of ways to handle this tricky circumstance.

One approach for handling colleagues who steal your ideas is to save your best ideas until you can mention them in a meeting or in a group email. Your contribution will be noted and no one else would be able to claim credit for it.
However, Fortune also suggests that if it's your boss who's claiming credit for your ideas, you should just say "thank you" and let it go, because your boss isn't in direct competition with you, as your co-workers might be.
What do you think? Have you had to handle a boss or coworker stealing your ideas?
