Ombuds are Important Tool for Dealing with Toxic Boss

An article in the Economic Times gives employees advice for dealing with toxic bosses. HR expert Adil Malia says the first step is getting a reality check from coworkers. If the problem is not you, but a toxic boss, she advises getting human resources involved.

After that:
  • Consult the Ombuds;
  • Keep a professional attitude and focus on your work;
  • Avoid gossip;
  • Continue respecting your manager, be personable;
  • Never publicly react or confront the toxic boss’s insinuations; and
  • Develop your Plan B.
The last resort, according to Malia is approaching the CEO. (Economic Times.)
