Are you afraid of your barking boss?

“The barking dog seldom bites” maybe the dog has no time to bite because he is busy barking. A dog can bark or bite. Maybe he just tries to scare away his enemies and has no intention to bite.

But the people placed in good positions always try to take advantage of their positions. Such people try to threat people who are either afraid of them or have no courage to stand against them.

Such people try to scare their juniors and get their purpose solved. Actually, we must always face them with enough courage. We must show them that we are not that soft and not willing to give up that easily.

This saying is true on seniors and bosses that try to take the new recruits under their influence when they join. That is natural as they are not much aware about the working environment of the organization.

However, the shrewd fresher these days are better equipped to face such bully typed people. Why, because they come better prepared now. They face them with right strategy from the beginning and take them by the horn.

If the young recruit knows his job fully well. He also knows that a dog that barks a lot does not bite. He can always take him in his stride and can handle him the way a stray is treated.

So how we come off it? It’s not that simple though but you will have to get rid of gradually. You will have to face your fear rather than run away from it and come out a victor sooner than later.

However, it’s easier said than done so you will have to find the roots of what scares you in your boss? How and when you felt scared for the first time?

  1. Often insecurity is at the heart of the problem. Insecure people like to throw their weight around and exercise their authority in such immature ways. Do some research about the area of insecurity and take it from there. That is one way to handle a mean boss.

  2. I really cannot stand barking people. In fact, I could only tolerate them for stuff like military boot camp where it’s obviously expected that’s the way things are going to be and probably should be (preparing for war). Anyway, though, the barking may become less when we do our jobs better. Perhaps the boss doesn’t really believe you would do things on your own without being yelled at, so if they saw it, they would lay off. I suppose people just can’t accept you’re good until they see it.

    Anyway, I don’t know if barking at kids is a good idea for parents all the time. In fact, kids need to learn to make decisions on their own. I mean, the barking parent won’t always be around you know.
