Got an Answer?
I’m like you. But in the workforce sometimes I think you need to ‘adopt’ learn there are different approaches. So I’m not telling you to lie or be fake. But maybe hold your opinions back unless they are asked for? And if you feel like you really need to get something off your chest, go to a higher manager, or someone else that could have a position of power and not make you feel undermined.
I’ve had a similar boss and I didn’t say much to him. I didn’t Change who I was. But it made work just being about doing my job and he appreciated that (and people knew I was down to earth and who the power player was!)
I wonder if we work/have worked for the same person ;)
You gotta be careful with your feedback I reckon - sometimes it’s a trap haha.
Don’t be fake but emotional intelligence is key in the workplace. Help your boss, try to empathise with them. Be a team player, be strategic.
