This is the trickiest of all because he has more power. This is the area your failing at. Figure out how to...
Quote: Originally Posted by Bradford I'm sorry, but the best way to deal with this is to find a new job. Trying to get your boss fired is a waste of time, reflects poorly on you and will not gain you any respect in your company. Whether you succeed or not, you will always be the whiny guy who complained about his boss. Yes, that is why I am actively looking to move to a different department. There is no question going against the higher up no...
Quote: Originally Posted by Dragon I think in order to forgive, first you have to understand. The reason people can`t forgive others is because they don`t try to understand the other side, and are only viewing things through their own eyes. That work sometimes but other times trying to understand will not work because some people are just the way you are. No matter how hard you try to understand, you will never get to a reason that is...
Quote: Originally Posted by Alter +1. You know, I really do respect your desire to make things better but I am not really getting why you refer to this as a moral or ethical issue. Ethics and morals are highly subjective and I can't see that getting anywhere. If this is really a serious company then someone should be able to judge if he is good for business or bad for business and incompetence and stupidity are usually bad for business. You need to...
Forgiveness is one of those things I believe everyone needs to learn and use. If someone wronged you intentional or not, it will hurt you more in the long run if you were to hold on to these things. Forgiveness is IMHO one of the toughest things to learn in life because no one likes to feel hurt, used, etc. I agree for the most part that women hold on to grudges more then men but I have met men that are just as bad or even worse with holding grudges. The amount of time...
Quote: Originally Posted by Alter This thread reminds me that I did actually participate in getting my predecessor fired and I ended up replacing him. Like your superior he never did anything illegal or against policy but he was incompetent and lacked leadership ability. The main thing that got him canned was that complaints came from a few different people and his incompetence was linked to potential money loss. Actually, two people quit the company to...
Quote: Originally Posted by globetrotter we use that too, but in the end what is important for people in my position is performance by numbers, which saves my ass. OP - a few years ago I had a boss who was a real animal. too examples - I put in a request for a vacation and he didn't say anything. a few weeks later I go on vacation, and he calls me when I am in the airport with my family, asks me where I am and when I say I am on my way to a...
Quote: Originally Posted by LVoer Depending on the laws in your jurisdiction you can file sexual harassment/human rights complaint with an arms-length tribunal. There is often no-reprisal protections built into the legislation, so if you are looking to cause some grief go for it, getting fired usually only helps your case. He is not doing anything close to sexual harrassment but he's known to have a dislike of a certain race and blatantly...
Quote: Originally Posted by Alter If he is high up and pleasing his bosses then, yea, you are fucked. Personally, I would try to change departments. Does your company have a career development process? Perhaps you could speak to someone in HR and ask about options to move up the corporate ladder by transferring to another department. You could mention that one of the reasons is that you feel your motivation is down due to "management problems" without...
