Most people at some point in their lives have to deal with a difficult boss. Difficult supervisors vary in personality from being a bit arrogant or rude, all the way to be downright abusive. Many people believe that an abusive boss has control of her personal life outside of work by reducing their self esteem and making them live in constant fear. The role of a supervisor sometimes attracts certain controlling-type personalities because they crave the power that gives them due to the lack of control over their personal lives. A supervisor has complete control over their most basic human needs of their ability to put food on the table and a roof over his head. These are powerful motivating factors that allow a difficult supervisor to control people through fear of losing these basic needs. We may not be always able to correct their behavior, but never should have to live in fear and let our difficult boss control our lives. Here are some strategies in dealing with a situation head difficult.
1. Always have a plan B. Most people are afraid of having an argument with his boss about his abusive behavior, because they fear reprimand or losing their jobs as a result. Their fear is usually justified if the supervisor is a control-freak and feels that his subordinate is threatening their control. Before trying any type of conflict, we must always have a plan B in case things do not work. A plan B is the best alternative that can be reached without having to negotiate anything with your boss.Tags: jobs
