“No man goes before his time, unless the boss leaves early.”-Groucho Marx
Most employees at some point in their work lives have to deal with a new boss or a difficult boss or a colleague who has just been promoted to be your boss. To make things work with any of these kinds of bosses, it requires specific skills.
Understanding a new boss is like going on a date. You need to first observe the personality, his likes/dislikes, his way of responding to queries. Based on your observation, you need to modify yourself to create a healthy working environment for both.
A colleague becoming your boss could be a tricky situation. This relationship could come with ego-issues, conflicts of interests and could create a negative environment, not only for you but also for your team and organization. On the other hand, if you approach this situation with the right attitude, you could leverage from each other and contribute positively to the team’s performance.
Difficult bosses vary in personality from being rude, to being downright abusive. Many people feel that an abusive boss controls their personal life outside of work by lowering their self-esteem and making them live in constant fear. In such cases, understanding your boss’ expectations of you, probing and responding appropriately, working out a system that is agreeable to him and throwing your ego out of the window could actually help the both of you to work together as a productive team.
