Learn how to navigate a difficult relationship with your boss by understanding your own triggers, managing your responses, and evaluating your options for next steps.
- Over the course of a career, you might have as many as 10 or more different employers and within certain organizations, you might have multiple roles over time. That means you might have as many as 15 or more bosses and that doesn't include all of your bosses' bosses, either. We all know that sometimes they act like they're your boss too. The good news is that most of these bosses will be decent people, and decent managers. But, that of course, leaves a lot of room for some of them to be, well, difficult. In this course, we'll talk about how difficult bosses can harm you and your team and what you can do about it.
I'll help you think about your options, identify the risks, and think about when and how to speak up and do something. All bosses may not be amazing but you can learn how to make the very best out of a difficult situation. So, let's get started.
