You Vs. the Boss: 8 Options

Paul Sloane discusses eight potential avenues for when things between you and the boss just are not working out. Start by figuring out if everybody has a problem with the boss or just you. Ask yourself why exactly you think there are problems. Schedule a time to discuss your concerns and discover together which ones are legitimate. See if you can agree to an action plan on how to keep work running smoothly. This means making the effort to understand the boss’s objectives and motivation. Should this all fail, you can get risky and talk to your boss’s boss about why you think—without pointing fingers—that your department is not performing to its potential.  Alternatively, you can try to move laterally to work in another department for a while. But if the misery is truly too much, just bite the bullet and quit.
