Career Talk: When You “Hate” Your Boss…

Employer- Employee relationships aren’t always so rosy.

For different reasons, some people are not on good terms with their bosses at work. This could be the head of the company or just the immediate person you report to at work.

Here are some common reasons for friction between employees and their bosses

  • Salaries not paid on time
  • Sending employees on other personal duties aside from their official duties
  • Bosses asking employees for affairs and threatening their jobs if they refuse
  • Use of bad language and abusive words in addressing each other…. and much more

Conflict at the work place is often a serious issue and has caused some people to resign their jobs even when they weren’t really ready to. I’ve heard people say too many times… “I’m going to leave that job” and when you ask why, they say “I don’t like my boss.”

Are you currently in such a situation or have you ever been in one where you don’t like your boss or as some would say, you “hate” your boss? What is/was the cause of the conflict between you both? Did this cause you to resign or are you planning to? How are you coping with the situation?

What would be your advice on dealing such a situation?

Let’s discuss!
