What To Do When You Don’t Like Your Boss

Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster: How to Manage Your BossWe’ve all suffered through employment for employers that we didn’t necessarily like – or enjoy working for.  If you are currently in that situation, or have been at some point in time, you’ve come to realize that everybody copes with that atmosphere in a different way.  Some are healthy ways to cope and some are not.

Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster: How to Manage Your BossKatherine Crowley and Kathi Elster, Authors of “Working for You Isn’t Working for Me,” joins hosts Anita Campbell to show you how to take back some control and learn to manage your boss and yourself by applying their four-step process.

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to technical issues with our broadcasting company, BlogTalkRadio.com, there is a silence and delay at the beginning of the recording.  Just keep listening – the show will start — we promise!

Below are the questions we asked Katherine and Kathi:

  • (2:33) First, can you tell us about yourself and your background?
  • (3:32) Did that lead you directly to writing the book or was that something that happened in between?
  • (7:08) Katherine, what kind of situations do people encounter with bosses?
  • (7:46) Some people like to be left alone at work, so why an absentee boss such a problem then?
  • (9:07) What kinds of bosses are there and who is the most difficult to work with?
  • (10:30) What other types are difficult to work with?
  • (13:43) How do people cope with bad bosses?  What can you do about it?
  • (16:44) What should you do, instead of these negative coping mechanisms, to deal with a bad boss?
  • (18:32) What can you do, physically, to calm down?
  • (20:30) What does the four step process involve?
  • (23:20) Let’s say you work for someone who is younger than you are.  What is the challenge in that situation?
  • (24:36) Are there any final thoughts each of you would like to leave our listeners with before we close?
  • (26:40) Katherine and Kathi, where can people find out more?

    Don’t treat your boss like the enemy.
    Instead of fretting over yourself, figure out how you can make your boss like or even love you instead by exceeding his expectations and finding ways to provide more value for the company that can benefit the both of you.
    There is a reason for everything, rather than complaining, work on improving your performance instead!
