You like your job, but your boss gives you a hard time. What can you do if your current boss stresses you out? There are many things an employee can do to solve this problem.

First, try to do more than what is expected from you at your current job. Try to get things done ahead of time and help out your co-workers. Your boss and co-workers will notice and give you more respect.

Try to reduce any potential conflicts. If you see trouble coming, try to catch it earlier before it becomes an argument. Use your problem solving skills to prevent any arguments. Remember communication is the key in preventing conflicts in the work place.

When you converse with your boss, try to focus on his interests. If your boss likes golf, then ask him about his golf game or talk about your golfing stories. Talk to your boss regarding his interests and your boss will appreciate it.

Talk with your boss about your problem. If you can, ask your boss questions on how everything is going. Ask him if you need to improve on anything. Take the initiative and ask for possible suggestions for improvement.

If nothing works, then change departments or find another place to work. There are many different jobs and places you can work so do not feel limited to just your place of employment. People change jobs for various reasons so do what is best for you.

Everybody has to deal with a not so great boss. The key is to find ways to reduce any conflicts. Open communication is very important. Be flexible and try following these suggestions. If nothing else works, then maybe you need to find another job.
