Imagine a boss that doesn’t give you a day off for seven weeks.
Or one that calls you in the middle of your radio show to tell you what you’re doing wrong.
The one who critiques your work when he or she is under the influence (almost every night).
The boss who shows favoritism to others and doesn’t keep their word.
I have worked for all these people. Perhaps you have a few challenges of your own.
Bad bosses cause good employees to quit jobs they love.
Rule one – never quit a job you love.
Rule two – outlast the bad boss who is making your life miserable (unless they are abusers or so adversely affecting your health that you are in jeopardy). But report them.
Power, politics and ego are three of the most likely attributes of a bad boss.
Rule three – while suffering fools, never stop reminding yourself of your value.
