Sorry Mr Sundaram but if I were to look for positive in a boss who is prejudicial, treats me badly, gives me all the work while his flatterers free ride and then they get the best of the projects and top ratings and salary raise, I would die of nervous breakdown. Or are you saying that my being continuously professionally abused like this will make him have a change of heart?
Are you saying that there are no bad bosses and even if we have a bad boss we should think, "Ok, at least this guy is good in holding meetings so it is ok if he treats me badly"?
In practical organizations where you and I work, there are people who are idiots who could be my boss or colleagues. I don't think we can solve the problem by pretending that they don't exist.

Hi Coolnavya,
All are human beings and many leaders do not know what is Emotional Intelligence. If you are being subjected to ill treatment (according to your feeling and opinion, apart from other kinds of harassments listed by you), you always have a choice of other organisations.
Please remember, there is no organisation devoid of politics, bickerings, backstabbing because all organisations are filled with human beings !
You can always criticise back, give negative feedback and so on, but it wont lead you anywhere. In fact people will start labelling you as well.
Am sorry to say that, when you have options, please consider them judiciously.
Best wishes

No point criticizing, of course.
Also, exercising the option of other organizations should be the last resort. As you said, all organizations have such people - one can't keep moving out of every organization because of such people.
Me thinks when you encounter them, you first try to resolve the issue and then, if that doesn't work out, you move out.

Nice discussion this. Everybody wants to play nice but there are situations where that ceases to be an option.
Also, every situation is different so any generic guideline needs to be seen with a pinch of salt.

You can’t fight with everyone so it is important to choose your battles carefully. Some places, just stepping aside would be better.

Dear Mr Bodhisutra,
A very good article.
It is horses for the courses.
There is no universal medicine.
With Boss and Seniors -- what is necessary is, TACT
With Colleagues - it is a FRIENDLY chide
With Subordinates - It is an ASSERTIVE ( not AGGRESSIVE) approach.
Good Post, Lovely Interaction by members and Great Learning.
