TIP: Next time you feel the urge to bash your boss coming on

Marshall Goldsmith shared many reasons why bashing the boss directly is never a good thing

  • You demean yourself. If you are so brilliant that you can consistently judge your boss, and your boss is so stupid that he merits endless hours of critique, why do you report to the idiot? Ultimately, when we discredit our boss, we discredit ourselves.
  • You come across as a hypocrite. When you bash your boss behind her back, the person you are talking to may think, "What do they say about me when I'm not around?"
  • You communicate a lack of courage. If the boss is behaving in a way that is bad for the company, why don't you challenge him? The answer must be that you are afraid.

One alternative is to focus on the situation and be a part of the solution.
