Pride is a trap that often swallows up many people especially those with ranks, money talents or beauty to show off. It comes automatically from the heart and it tends to wire up into someone’s behaviors thus making hard to control. So if a boss is not sensitive enough, the egotism could be extremely oppressing to the juniors, or those below. Some bosses don’t know themselves thus by trying to define who they are they may course tremendous pain to the subordinate staff. Hence the essence of knowing how to deal with a prideful boss.
Two things are important when dealing with such a character;
A Boss suffering from pride will always want to have his ways and ideas up. Therefore may be dangerous to content with him. This doesn’t mean that you should not give your opinion on how things ought to go, no, but only do so with humility. Don’t spend much time correcting your boss as this may create enmity. Prideful bosses don’t like to be challenged even if what they support is wrong. So why should putting things straight against his wish be your bother.
Learn to let things go by pre-programming you mind and knowing what you expect. When it comes to dealing with a prideful boss you should expect bad looks, unreasonable abusive language or even ill treatment. When all this comes, remain calm and encourage yourself knowing that you are more strong and stable.
You see, being proud is being unstable because the highly always tend to be over-expecting. So with this in mind, you should know that your boss will always tent to be over demanding in terms of respect, recognition and praise. All this should not bother you, unless you also want to be regarded as “boss”- remain humble and you’ll conquer all!
