Difficult boss – here is help

Use the power of good relationship building before and during all negotiations with your difficult boss. People sometimes forget than former opponents often make the strongest allies. You may find that a well managed approach, working things through with your boss and trying to see their point of view will earn you respect over time. It may even mean you get that! .

Working With a New Boss

Most new bosses will have made enquiries about key people in their new team. But this is still to some extent a chance to make a fresh start. As you get to know your new boss, take the opportunity to make a new and positive impression. Show how good you are and, when the new boss is settled in, make sure they know how interested you are in your own career.
