Hi Frnds!!!!!!

I am in a serious problem....Really need your suggestion....I have joined a MNC as a Asst Manager-HR....My problem is my Boss...He is very rude and I have never come across a personality like this before...In last company I was into multiple things and was a very efficient employee ...Infact they was not relieving me and also I got my resignation approved after one month........

Here in this new company it's been 2 months now but my boss is really a tough personality....He is rude with the entire staff..everybody is pissed off ...but what to do ...even if we all work fine he never acknowledge but yes he criticize us.....and too in front of everybody.......I doesn't feel like talking to him...and generally avoid him ..I do all the communication through E mails only with him....Entire office here do the back biting for him...Actually he is a NRI and as per the company rule 15 days he spend in Singapore & 15 days in India....It seems that as if he like Singapore culture but can't say same for India.....He keeps on scolding everybody on silly issues as well...He is very impatient also.....

I really don't know how tackle the situation....Other then him entire staff is very good...Should I Look for some other option or just stick to this company & should gain experience of handling difficult people.....I have option of job hopping with me as of now....but will this be a practical decision......

Plz advice & help me....

Hi Shweta,
In my view, job hopping should be the last option. Even if you move on,you can get the same type of boss or even worse, a boss who is very sweet, but doesnt take things professionally. I think you got a great opportunity to learn to deal with difficult people. So i would suggest you to stay, focus on work and keep observing your boss to see what frustrates him and what kind of behaviour keeps him calm.
That way you will get a way to deal with him and also to get your work done with too much of a problem.
Thanks and Regards

Hi Shweta,

You should continue working same place and learn how to manage difficult people.

You can take your Co-workers into confidence including seniors and prepare action plans to tackle him.

A positive & collective effort by all in the organisation will change him.

In my opinion you should stay there. You will learn a lot from this kind of situation (My personal experience says so) sometime you will feel you should look around for another opportunity but try to give some time to this job also. Be calm and patient and concentrate on what you are doing. It ill help you in understand how to deal with difficult people and that to managing difficult boss.

Sweet are the fruits of Adversity. People who have worked in adverse situations will gain more knowledge and enough tactics to deal with any person with a different attitude. Rolling stones gather no mass.. So my friend please don't be considered by Organisations as a Rolling Stone instead become like Hercules and brave the situations and become strong.
All the best..:icon1:

Hi Shewtha,
Whenever an employee goes for a change, then it is a gamble for both, for employee as well as for employer. I think being an HR professional you are very much aware of that.
So why are you worried for, may be it is the temporary phase and your boss wants you to be more productive from the level you have been giving the output.
Few inputs are that keep on observing his saying, in terms of queries, advises, etc. and just have the analysis of that and if that is something related to theortical aspect, then clear those aspects, in that way you will be having the benefit of gaining the knowledge and opportunity to tackle the tough people, which will be a only helping instrument for you for your future.
And last but not least it happens with everybody, so no need to worry at all...

Thanks to all for your replies as I guess you all have stated it correctly...Instead of quitting I shouls start dealing with it......and also I guess it an be the best HR practicle experience......
Honestly if I say....I have never come across such personality ..that's why just was not comfortable but I guess This situation is not that tough too handle....

Thats the Spirit Shwetha.. Always remember "Winners Never Quit and Quitters Never Win". I am sure you are going to be a "Winner"..:icon1:. Go for it..:icon1:
