My boss has poor listening and empathy skills
Although polite, my boss is emotionally unavailable. Her approach is old fashioned: she’s closed off, I know very little about her personally, and she expects her reports to do exactly what they are told with no pushback. She’s also excessively critical and rarely gives praise. Of the 5 people on my team I have discussed this with, not one of them likes working for her. I like my job other than this and I would love to find a way to tolerate the situation until she moves on to another role or company. It’s tough though. I am an experienced professional and I’m accustomed to partnering with my boss and contributing my expertise to decisions, having productive debates, receiving mentorship, etc. How can I cope with a boss like this so I can stay in my role?
