(Disclaimer to my current boss, who reads this newspaper, this isn’t about you.)
37% of all workers have been bullied on the job. According to one survey, bad bosses come in every shape and color. Most bullies are male; however, among female bad bosses, 71% choose victims who are also female. What makes a bad boss? And what can be done to stop him or her?
Unfortunately, a bad boss cannot always be redeemed. Often, it’s the boss who stays, and everyone else has to leave. Employees caught in a bad boss conundrum would be wise to see it for the minor irritation it usually is, and work around it until the situation changes.
