How to deal with a manager who hates you

Rob Enderle | May 2, 2016
Sometimes it’s your boss, sometimes it’s you. Columnist Rob Enderle writes that it’s important to figure out why you and your manager don’t get along. Then you have to decide if it’s something you can fix or if you simply need to get the hell out.

Learn from bad manager experiences to avoid repeating them

Once a manager has formed an opinion, good or bad, it is really hard to get them to change it. If you take the time to figure out whether you and a manager will work together well before you take the job it will save you a ton of pain. It will also reduce the risk of having to leave the company to get away from a bad reputation (which can hound you your entire career).

In the end though, figuring out what created the problem while accepting you likely can’t change the manager will help you determine what you need to do to fix it. It likely will mean looking for a new job, but if you at least understand how you got there you can hopefully avoid making whatever mistake was made again.  

Best of luck!
