There is a popular saying “ You can’t choose your parents nor can you choose your boss”. At some stage of our life, we’ve all had a Boss. Infact a boss can make or break one’s professional career. There are difficult bosses and good bosses too. The difficult boss is one who sets a negative tone by being unapproachable, overtly busy, and creating an unhealthy work environment. These managers in all likelihood will fail in their duties at some point because of these traits, but in the meantime, their employees have to deal with them.
A difficult boss may actually not be a bad guy, he may not be mean, controlling or a complete idiot either. It’s just his style of managing things that makes him unpopular.
Difficulty is a word with many negative connotations. A difficult boss is same as a bad boss. A difficult boss will not shout obscenities at his team for the sake of it. He knows how to delegate and how to trust the right people. A difficult boss may be just the right leader to have if an employee wants to grow in his profession. A difficult boss pushes you into becoming the best version of yourself at work. It’s a leadership style that sits comfortably between an overbearing boss who will only excuse you from a meeting if you fall dead and the kind of boss whose team takes him for granted.
