Tame an intrusive boss

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Q I’m a good manager—when I’m left alone. But I have a new boss who’s always contradicting me in front of my employees and generally butting in. Sometimes she comes to my staff meetings, derails our agenda and makes me look weak. What can I do?

A In a private talk, ask for feedback on your performance. Your boss might confess she wishes she could pull back but she lacks confidence in some aspect of your management. That leads her to oversee you more closely. But if she just praises you, then ask her to give you more space to manage on your own. Propose that she limit her appearances at your meetings and refrain from contradicting you in front of your team.
