The boss is harsh with mood swings
I have a problem at my work place. The boss is so harsh and sometimes he comes with mood swings and takes it out on us. He is also so impatient and wants things to be done at speed.
I hate this job and the pay is also too little. He insults me and threatens that we need to sit down and review my salary and to think that salary is just too little. This is really weighing me down and I hate the job.
I have developed high blood pressure because of the stress. I want to leave that job but I have nothing else to fall back on after I quit.
Please advise me
I have dealt with many aspects of this problem before, so suggest you read these posts for my advice on the subject.
What if your boss is bad tempered
Within that post I have placed links to a sister site; –
Minimising conflict in the workplace
Tools and techniques for handling conflict in the workplace
Tackling conflict in the workplace
By the way, it is interesting to review some of the comments made by other readers at the bottom of the posts.
All the aspects of how to approach your manager are dealt with in those posts: Put yourself in his shoes, who you can and should talk to, interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, conflict management strategies.
I’ve also specifically covered dealing with a difficult manager, advising that you review your own performance, make sure you are above reproach before you complain about your managers’ behavior and attitude, and be sure that your own behavior in the workplace is professional.
Ask yourself if your manager is being difficult with you because you are failing to reach their expectations of you, or your targets. Be sure you are consistent with the values of the team, your attitude at work is the best it can be, and that you are a productive member of the team
Aside from your boss’ apparent bad temper, you are telling me that you hate the job, the money is bad, and that the situation is affecting your health. Maybe it is better for you to move on to another job anyway?
Please read the posts I have recommended, formulate and implement and plan. In the meantime, you should consult your doctor and get the appropriate treatment, and then begin to search in earnest for another job that you don’t hate, ideally with better money and a boss with a better temper!
