A boss' behaviour can make or break a job for us. A boss who inspires and empowers us helps us to achieve things we might never have done on our own.
But one who nags and digs and even bullies? Whose office we dread being called into? Who undermines us in meetings, criticises even the way we breathe, and makes us dread Monday almost before we wake up on Sunday?
Unfortunately nightmare bosses do exist. And I'm most definitely not making excuses for them. But what if they were running Imposter Syndrome?
There's a Native American saying:
"All criticism is borne of someone else's pain."
