How to Handle a Tough Boss

Stop focusing on everything that’s wrong with your boss. Decide that you can handle his demands, or his distance, or his anger. Don’t allow your boss’s negative side to bring out your negative side.
Joe Torre

Regardless of whether you like or dislike your boss, you have to respect him and you have to respect his opinion. If you don’t, you might be in the wrong job.
Derek Jeter

Would you like to work for an incredible boss? Then start by treating your boss like an incredible person. Do extraordinary things for him or her, and over time I bet you’ll notice a difference in your relationship.
Mark Sanborn

Showing deference to your boss means that you’re loyal and respectful. You’d be amazed how much you can accomplish with a tough boss when you grant him that basic regard.
Joe Torre

Career Development

Making a success of the job at hand is the best step toward the kind you want.
Bernard Baruch

Look for ways to make your boss look good.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Never demean the time you spend in the trenches. If you pay attention to what you’re doing, you can learn an awful lot about how an organization behaves, and that can be very useful later on.
Pat Riley

You promote yourself every time you take on a new responsibility.
William Gore

I think the safest, surest way to the top is to have a strong, broad base of experience. That’s why I use the pyramid metaphor. Pyramids have a stronger base than a free-standing ladder. But to get that strong base, you may have to take lateral promotions, or maybe even take a step backward in your career.
