How to deal with Boss who is rude and arrogant?
My Boss is rude and I feel like slapping him. I have no choice other than working their only because of many reasons. Any suggestion and experience on how to deal with such boss?
We all have them. Just ignore them like they don't exist.
To be honest. I had such a boss. One night I dreamt hitting him with a baseball bet. The next morning I decided to quit my job. The best thing I ever did.
Pray for him to have a better relationship each night for five days while he sleeps. Picture him happy in your presence saying kind words. In less than a week he will start to treat you with kindness.
My new boss doesn't holler at me she just ignores me as if I don't exist. She sends horrible emails with spelling errors from her Smartphone with rude answers and she doesn't answer my phone calls but sends emails after the fact. So unprofessional.
A former boss used to scream at me. One day, I managed to stand quietly, staring directly into his eyes. I kept staring; he kept screaming. Suddenly, his voice turned squeaky and just pinched out. He turned on his heels and left. He never yelled or screamed at me again.
It might work; look straight into those angry eyes with no expression on your own face.
I think there are some people who think they can use their position to abuse other colleagues especially those who are below them. My advise is to ignore him and just do your job, be polite and be civil to him. As long as you get paid each month, that is what matters. Show him good and maybe he will respect you one day and not be rude to you. Don't bring yourself down to his level.
Before we scrutinize anyone for his actions, it may be better if we try to understand him first. What could have triggered him to be such kind of boss? Does he have family issues? Have you tried to reach out? Often than not, we are too focused in looking at others mistakes without realizing ours. But of course, we can't disregard the fact that some people are naturally rude. If you're unlucky to have one as a boss, be patient. Never let his arrogance get into you. As long as you are doing what you are supposed to do, there's nothing for you to be intimidated about. Good luck my friend and I hope your boss gets a change of heart in God's time.
A great piece of advice dailytop, & i'd just like to add: When ever a person is rude to us, we should see it as a test on ourself as to how we react/respond..Also like you say it's the bosses problem not the employee, as no normal person is ever
is a bad answer because this worker is not your slave and he has some duties in this company
When I worked in the newspaper business I was a supervisor of 3 departments. I had gone through 5 managers in the 7 years that I worked there - each knowing less about my jobs and responsibilities than the other - to the point where they thought I was blowing smoke up my own stack (if you know what I mean). That last one was the straw that broke the camels back. I said very plainly, "You have a few choices here: You can A) Leave me alone and let me do my job. B) Let me train YOU in my jobs so I can take a vacation and you can get an appreciation of what I REALLY do. C) Fire me for being insubordinate."
She left me alone until review time came. Mine was horrible after 6 years of STELLAR reviews! But when she stated I need to be more accurate in my work and spelled "accurate" wrong I snapped. I highlighted ALL her spelling and grammar mistakes, took it to HR and gave them my notice.
I am happy to say I am healthier for leaving (and they delegated my jobs to 5 other people). Best advice: DOCUMENT EVERYTHING. Inappropriate speech, bad reviews, bad behavior. Chances are it's not just you. If there is a pattern of misconduct then HR will have to take action by either giving them notice or sending them to etiquette (or anger management) class - but they won't be able to do anything unless there is a pattern of behavior AND paper trail.
Well first you must let him know how you feel. Document who was there to here this, date, time remarks act. Documentation is very very important. You see there are federal laws against hostile work environment and that is exactly what this is. Letting things like this causes tragedy across the nation. If not for you for others as well. You cannot be the only person this effects. Letting it go may someday push someone not so stable over the edge. Just read the news.
You will need to work out what their arrogance means to them and what is the motive for it?
Once you have determined why and when he is arrogant, you can then figure out how to react and most importantly, perceive his actions as a mere shadow of his troubled emotions.
90 percent of the time, when someone shows arrogance is a form of coping with pressure and more importantly their care for the scenario (work, life etc)
Be compliant all the time. This may sound like a cop out, but if you try to argue or confront him, things may go badly for you. Instead of trying to confront him, bring it up to HR, or even his supervisor. This is a far better route, and it might turn out other people have issues with him too.
Pray for him and ask Yashshua to send him blessings as Yahshua told us to do in the Scriptures. Then he will change for the better. Do this daily. Love always wins.

What's the difference between confidence and arrogance?

I've often been accused of being arrogant, and it's usually by people who disagree with me about something. I've noticed that some of my favorite historical personages have also been accused of arrogance. What exactly is arrogance? And is it always bad?Is there any non-pejorative way to say that...
