If you are human and you have a job, you are probably going to have a supervisor at some point in your life. This can be difficult for many reasons. On the off chance that you have a cool supervisor, this next sentence will not apply to you... Some reasons that supervisors can be tough to work with include the fact that they can: tell you what your schedule is, give you all of your work assignments, choose to approve or disapprove of a lot of work you do, show very little gratitude, and can be unreasonable. Do those sound like amazing things to work with? No!! Not very many people enjoy being told what to do believe it or not.
So how do you work with your supervisor when you are holding so much frustration inside?!?
Here are little tips that help me think through things more clearly:
Remember that you can never speak for other people, but you can influence them and/or make your own life better simultaneously. I have struggled with various supervisors because of the lack of sensitivity, gratification, etc. in the work place, but I have been able to work around it because of these tools that I mentioned above. Supervisors can be difficult, but on most occasions they are necessary.
Feel free to complain, give feedback, etc. We all need support. Work (and mostly supervisors) can be rough.
