The Knobull Team Helps Workers Cope With A Tough Boss
Instead of seeking advice, asking for input or showing humility, difficult bosses are notorious for ruling with an iron fist, using intimidation as a defense against their own insecurities."
The American workforce has resounded, like a bullet searing through the heart of the obsolete iron-fisted corporate structure with such trends as The Great Resignation, "quiet quitting," "productivity paranoia" and "proximity bias."
The worst step is to impulsively bail from a job without thinking it through. You don't want to trade one problem for another so try these steps:
Talk over your concerns with your boss in a nonthreatening and professional way. If your situation is still unsustainable and unfair, keep detailed records in case you're asked to validate your complaints.
If you stay in your position even if you're not thrilled with it, you won't trade one problem for another by being unemployed in today's economy.
If you can't change your boss, you can take action that will benefit you in the long run.
Avoid anger, frustration and impatience. Use good judgment. Steer clear of inappropriate, offensive, inflammatory, derogatory language or gossip. Remain tactful, diplomatic and professional even when you're frustrated. Talk with your boss, try to understand his or her human side and help them do their job.
Schedule a meeting with your boss. Find out what the expectations of you are and the expectations of your boss's boss. Ask exactly what type of performance is expected of you in order for you to receive an excellent review rating.
Reach out to coworkers. Other colleagues are usually experiencing similar boss issues. Start support-group meetings before or after work or during lunch in designated places onsite. By meeting together and talking about problems constructively, you can develop a rich support system. The Knobull team can support this process with helpful guides and coaching.
