Find The Reason Why They’re Unpleasant

There are some people that just enjoy being an unpleasant person, and if you find out that this is the case in terms of your boss, you may want to think about speaking to someone who could help tackle this or finding a new job. Learning from your past experiences is important, and you want to make sure that you avoid any future bad bosses during other points in your career. However, not every bad boss has the intention to be unpleasant.

There might be a reason as to why they treat you with distaste or have an attitude to anyone they deal with when it comes to the workplace. It’s a good idea for you to figure out what this might be because there might be a chance that you can work around this and help your bad boss becomes a good one. Of course, it’s not your responsibility to change this authoritative figure into someone who is nice to others, but if no one else is listening or doing anything about it, you can always attempt to sort out the problem yourself.

 

Don’t Let It Affect Your Mental Wellbeing

Your mental wellbeing and general health should always come first whether that’s in your work or in your personal one. When you’re dealing with someone who might constantly be picking you out to emotionally and verbally attack, or if they’re just putting you on edge, that’s not healthy. There should never be a time where you dread going into work. As much as we can rely on money to keep us going in life, that’s not the be-all and end all to living.

There are plenty of jobs available out there, and if you find that your mental health is taking a knock, it’s very important to put yourself first and either ask for it to change or leave. It’s good to fight your corner of course when it comes to possibly removing that person from the organization, but your health is certainly not worth sacrificing for some role that you can find elsewhere.

 

Speak To Someone

There may be a possibility where you can speak to someone, like the HR manager or a person within the business who has more overall authority than your boss. Any accusation of someone abusing their role or being a bully should always be flagged officially. If you ever find yourself in a vulnerable situation and where you’re not being supported by the company, you can always seek the help of employment solicitors. Never be afraid to speak up, no matter how little support you have. Voicing your concerns at least takes it from hearsay and rumours to something concrete and where action can be taken.

 

Identify The Triggers

With any boss, there’s going to be certain things that might rub them up the wrong way, and although you might not mean to do it, it happens. So think about all those scenarios where there’s been an unpleasant occasion and find out what the trigger was. If it’s something you couldn’t help, then it’s not up to you to try and fix it. Although, if there’s something that can be done or you have the opportunity to avoid it, then why not give it a go?

 

Act As The Leader

For some bosses, they might not be present at the most important times, and when there’s a lack of leadership in your team or for yourself, someone needs to take charge. If your position and other team allow it, having you as a back-up leader, might be just what you need. There might be times where your boss is trying to undermine you or question your decisions. In this case, you need to stand your ground and have confidence in yourself. Never let anyone make you feel unworthy of being in a role. Show them what you’re worth, and that could be what makes them turn into more of a pleasant leader.

 

Dealing with a bad boss is difficult, and it’s nothing you would want to wish on anyone else. So use these tips on dealing with a bad boss as best you can to improve the situation.

Let your Friends do the Work

Your friends probably know you more than anyone, so let them do the setting up for you. When you do, you will have a higher level of familiarity and comfort, not to mention that there’s a high chance that your date has already been “vetted” to some extent. If your friends are setting you up, then make sure that you don’t put too much pressure on them.  Sometimes there will be chemistry, and other times there won’t and there is nothing wrong with this.

 

Date your Friends and Transform your Dating Life

Someone in your friend’s circle probably already has similar values to you, and they may also know your background too. There’s a chance that you already feel comfortable with them, and as a lot of people say, friendship really is the foundation for a good relationship. For this reason, it can help to look for someone who you already have that connection with.

 

Choose a Good Dating Site

The best thing about dating sites is that it gives you the chance to really get to know someone before you commit.  You can list your preferences, and you can also find someone who is able to match your interests too. This will stop you from wasting your time and it will also put less pressure on the situation in general. If you are concerned about listing your status on a dating site because you are technically married but separated, then look into family solicitors and always be honest with the other person right from the get-go.

 

Focus on First Impressions

First dates can be overwhelming to say the least. For this reason, you need to focus on making a really good impression. Make eye contact, smile and try and pay attention to what the other person is saying. This will help you to know if there is potential for a relationship and it will also help you to know if there is anything that you can do to make that special connection. Sure, nerves can sometimes take over and this is normal, but if you be yourself then this will make the whole process way easier.

 

Don’t Play it Cool

Sure, playing it cool might sound like a good idea but it’s really not. Playing hard to get or just not acting interested in general won’t be doing you any favours and it may even sabotage your date. Try and focus on being open and welcoming as much as possible.
