Questions for a Life Coach: Boss Trouble

Question: My manager won’t let me make any decisions on my own. She complains about everything I do. I hate going in to work and have used up almost all my sick days.

Answer: If you are feeling like this, chances are your manager is feeling frustrated as well. Have you ever spoken to her about the issues? Have you ever asked her why she is unhappy with your work? Maybe her personality is to be controlling and negative, and it really has nothing to do with you. But even so, if your work is making you sick perhaps it is time for a change. You have resources available for you if you need someone to talk to about these kinds of problems. Contact your union local, or call the employee assistance program.
