Description

Bad Boss: Dealing with a Difficult or Toxic Manager

Be happy and successful at work with practical solutions for handling a bad boss or difficult manager

Having a bad boss or difficult manager can ruin not only your 9-5 weekdays but also create a toxic environment for your personal life too. It's not surprising that it's impossible to switch from being stressed or unhappy at work to joyfully spending the weekend reading on the beach. A difficult boss can haunt you with stress and unhappiness throughout your week. Regardless of your age or experience at any stage of your career a boss can be a huge problem for your long term progress and daily satisfaction... and that's what this course is designed to cure. If you are living with a challenging boss or manager and instead want to create an environment which is happy, productive and respectful, this course is perfect for you. It is possible, and there is hope!


In this course you'll learn practical techniques to deal with a bad boss and overcome a toxic work environment. Each lecture is tailored to a different management issue and will give you precise words to say, a range of practical non-confrontational techniques, and detailed tips on how you solve the problem. Most bad bosses are in fact not pure evil (although a couple are!) - often they are poorly trained or misguidedly trying to help you. The good news from this is that there is hope - by using these methods you can slowly train your boss to be a better manager to you, and create a happy and successful work environment. 


After this course you will be calm, collected, well prepared for any difficult conversations. In fact - you should be happy in the office and progressing quickly through your career! The course looks at lots of real life examples (some of which will definitely get you cringing) and give you practical tools you can use right away to get better results in your work relationship. Whether you're brand new to a role, or been living with this toxic relationship for years, this course will build essential skills for your negotiations, relationship building, and overcoming confrontation nerves.

  • How to be confident and respectful going into an intervention

  • Getting your message across clearly and effectively
