What to do if you HATE your boss

This is a classic situation that professionals find themselves in; they get a new job in an interesting industry, they like their colleagues and enjoy their work, yet one singular factor starts to ween its way into their lives, bringing with it chaos and eventually making them miserable – the boss.

Disliking your boss isn’t just a minor inconvenience; Swedish researchers at the Stress Research Institute in Stockholm studied 3,100 men over the course of 10 years and discovered that those who reported having bosses that they didn’t respect were 60% more likely to suffer from a heart attack, or another life-threatening cardiac condition.

    How about giving a "bad boss" feedback on what would help you achieving the team's goals or your personal development ambitions? This is not a one-sided relationship where you need to suffer in silence.
    If s/he does something truly toxic, or is not open to any kind of constructive feedback, escalate to the skip level lead or involve HR. No need to take on the victim role - most leads are still learning how to work with different teams and how to evolve in their role.
