Have you ever yelled at your boss? Have you accused your boss of not liking you? One of my direct reports did it to me on Friday when I told him that I could not figure out how he spends his day. He had not followed up on a number of clients, and his sales were abysmal this month. So, he took the defensive route and started telling me that I don’t support him, that I don’t like him, and that I have issues with him.
Well, when you cannot prove to your boss that you are doing all you can to keep your sales up, never ask questions, and produce piss-poor quality work, then, yep—it just might be the case that I don’t support him, don’t like him, and have issues with him!
