A. Answer the big question, “Is the problem me or my boss?” Analyze the source of his complaints. Does he nag because you’re starting to miss deadlines or forgetting to follow up? Is he snapping because he’s under pressure to accomplish more with fewer employees? If you’re sure that his behavior is unjustified, let him know. Tactfully say, “For most of the last seven years, you rarely snapped at me or criticized my work. In the last few months, you’ve changed. Has something happened?” Then listen. If things don’t improve, you may want to express your concern confidentially to an HR manager.
