Having boss problems can be a big distraction that may affect your performance in the workplace. It can also interrupt your personal life and cause problems at home, which may ultimately lead to arguments with the ones you love.
While all boss problems may be serious, there are some that require a little communication on your part, which may solve the problem. Many problems can be solved with a one-on-one talk with the boss. If it’s a simple problem, just brush it aside and continue with your work. If the problem is causing you to mess up and you can’t focus, try e-mailing your boss to explain your feelings and offer solutions that may eliminate the problem.
Types of Bosses
While all bosses are meant to guide and motivate you to succeed, some need to be aggressive in order to get the job done. Each boss tends to approach situations differently and deal with outcomes with different reactions. Keep in mind that bosses may be under major pressure by higher authorities and may act out as a way to ensure positive results from subordinates.
Bad Boss Behaviors
If your boss isn’t trying to motivate you in a positive manner that requires a little push, then you may have a serious problem on your hands. First, you need to ask yourself what your boss is doing and how it is making you feel. Common bad boss behaviors include bullying, harassment and discrimination. If you feel any of these relate to how your boss is acting toward you, you need to take action immediately.
What to Do Now
If you know your situation and you’re ready to move onto the next stage, you must contact the proper authorities and address the concern in an efficient and organized manner. Whoever you are addressing your situation to, remember to remain focused and explain every detail. You may need to have witnesses in some cases to describe what happened with you and your boss.
If you begin at a new workplace, and your boss simply starts mistreating you, the best option you have is to quit right away and not let it affect you. Your health is more important, and you don’t want to run the risk of working for somebody who can emotionally hurt you, which will, in turn, make you take it out on your family and friends. Always use careful judgment and don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.
