Ever heard of the saying “Working with good people matters because then the work environment is good” – Ranbir Kapoor. Good Working environment contributes greatly to the output of employees. When people work in tense atmosphere, they’re liable to make mistakes. There are employers who are playing a major role in seeing their subjects optimise their abilities, thus making them feel valued by recognising the work done.Sometimes workers are faced with the challenge of having to please a difficult boss. More like working with a pistol on your head. Most times they feel frustrated and targetted especially when they sense certain differences in reaction. The most important is that you still have to make the best of the situation and get your job done. Here below are 5 Secrets to dealing with a difficult boss.
1). Be Empathetic
Funny at times is that our perspective sometimes might not entirely be the case.Before you call him/her a difficult boss ask your self if there’s a reason for his/her behaviour or maybe you are just being too hard on them. Just maybe they are going through a lot. The secret here is try to stay professional irrespective of any treatment. Be mindful too that they too aren’t perfect and are liable to make mistakes.
2). Do your Job Effectively
Try as much as possible not to let anything affect your performance. Probably they are not satisfied by the work done. It is almost impossible for one to complain over a superb work. Plus, keeping to deadlines is important.
3). Identify Triggers
If your boss has anger management problems, try as much as possible identify what triggers it so as to be on the safe side. Is it late coming, try to be on time. Is he irritated by the least mistake, then you have to be keen to details, always double check.
4). Be Proactive
Employers love when their employees take the initiative to assume certain responsibilities without being told. It could be offensive to them if each time they have to school you on the ABC of the job.
5). Make your decision to stay or Leave
If you feel trapped, realistically evaluate how severe the situation is impacting you emotionally and mentally. If you decide to stay, it’s important to develop the aforementioned coping mechanisms to limit the effect of their behavior on your mental well-being.
