What you need to know:

  • As you look for a solution, remember that you and your manager are on the same side.

  • His success is your success, and so is his failure. First, show him some genuine support.

  • This is the time to demonstrate your commitment and dedication, and to reassure him that you are up to the task.

Q:  I work in the Sales Department of an insurance company and I am feeling very frustrated. My boss has set unrealistic targets, and he often uses intimidation to make us deliver. He does not listen to anyone’s complaints or requests for support. We are afraid to raise this higher up the leadership chain, because we fear that we could lose our jobs. How best can we handle this?
