WHAT’S ON TAP?

EPISODE 19We’ve all be stuck working for or with difficult people – and we’ve all BEEN the difficult person a time or two. But sometimes someone goes from being occasionally annoying to a long-term issue that messes with your work happiness, stress levels and overall work/life success. In this episode of the The Happy Hour Effect podcast you will get a bad boss solution. Not only will you will find out if you might be a bad boss or difficult person, but you will also learn how to fix the situation whether you’re an employee of a bad boss or guilty of bad management yourself.

YOUR TAKEAWAYS

You might be a bad boss or difficult person if…

  • Your past conversations or social posts are negative, egotistical, judgmental or rude.
  • No one comes to your office.
  • People race out of meetings when they’re over.
  • You send more emails than you receive.
  • Performance is down.

How to “fix” a bad boss:

For employees:

  1. Rise above and don’t complain.
  2. Seek allies to find a solution.
  3. Be empathetic to the person’s possible personal issues.
  4. Offer ideas and solutions.
  5. Do fun stuff outside of work.

For bad bosses and difficult people (see above to determine if this is you):

  1. Be empowering and trustworthy.
  2. Be flexible.
  3. Honor personal and professional goals of your team.
  4. Be approachable.
  5. Foster social and team connections.
