Not all bosses are loving, patient and understanding. On the contrary, they can be annoying and all time get on your nerves. Are you about to quit your job? Well, don’t jump to a conclusion without trying to pacify them. Let’s see how we can handle our impossible bosses!

Buttering the bread is one shortcut to get to your boss

Before you can pacify your boss, first learn to do a self assessment of your boss in all aspects and then proceed to change your boss. Try to observe and learn his motivations and discouragements and act accordingly. Buttering the bread is one shortcut to get to your boss, any rough bread once buttered becomes soft; similarly butter your boss with his motivations.

Rigid bosses are like oil in water

Like a horse with a fly mask, you should be committed to your work at all times and ignore anything that disturbs you including your boss who’s trying to act smart. When you do so, your boss will learn that you’re a wonderful employee and stop bugging you with his rough tone and harsh words. Rigid bosses are like oil in water, they would float but never mingle, likewise it’s better to adapt to your boss rather than expect him to adapt to you, because that’s an impossible task to achieve.

A rigid boss is often an outcome of rigid employees and also lazy ones too

Instead of changing your boss, why don’t you give a deaf ear and start to appreciate him once in a while even if he chooses to bounce back. Try avoiding stress reaching their desk, and then it would be an atom bomb thrown at you. Mold yourself to your boss’ strengths and weakness, rather than trying to black mark him and add more frustration to his routine. Always keep in mind that a rigid boss is an outcome of rigid employees and also lazy ones too. If the work allotted is completed and given on time, then there will be no reason for your boss to shout or scream but he would change his attitude and learn to appreciate and a whole new process of appreciation and care would be involved.

Learn to maintain your self-respect

Learn to maintain your self-respect so that he is forced to respect you the same way. Because when you respect yourself, then people around you tend to respect you the same way. The worst enemy that can pop up in an office, is the little demon called “gossips”. Avoid gossiping about yourself or your boss; which would lead you straight to the three word sentence that you would never want to hear “You are fired”.

Master the art of changing your moods

Master the art of changing your moods according to your boss’ mood swings so that you don’t end up arguing and making it even worse. And even after trying all this, your boss is still the same; it’s time for you to express your talent and workmanship in a better place where your work is valued. As it is said, “A bad boss is the No.1 reason employees quit”, according to an International Association of Administrative Professional Survey. That would result in the final outcome of handling a rigid boss.
