While some bosses might just be downright crazy, most of the time you get snapped at pushed too hard because of forces that are outside of your control.
Deutschendorf explained, "Alter your way of viewing the situation — you are working for yourself instead of your boss or the organization.
While it's never pleasant being come down on hard, sometimes it's for a fair reason.
Levo offered, "Always straighten out every detail of a project before you present it to your boss in order to minimize any conflict and reduce your stress and nervousness going into the meeting." When you feel like you've prepared in full and did the best work you could, it will be easier to stand up for yourself if you're still picked on.
You never know who's watching that could help you rise in your career.
Warrell pointed out, "While it may be easy to succumb to resentment or resignation and mentally check out of your job, doing so not only undermines your own integrity but it can put you at risk of being branded as whiner, a slacker, or both." You're not doing yourself any favors by retaliating in that way.
