The silent suffering under Chefallüren

The boss is freaking out again, because the pencil lay across the desk instead of lengthwise. Or he makes decisions that no one can understand.

Surprisingly many workers suffer in Germany under such bossy attitudes, often quietly and secretly. But many of them also shy away from conflicts: they continue to suffer quietly and secretly, are frustrated, do service according to regulations - right through to inner and outer dismissal.

Why conflicts are unnecessary

But nerve-wracking arguments do not have to be - because with some rhetorical tricks you can lead the boss from below. Cheffing is the name of the method Dr. Cornelia Topf in a series of articles  - and she has the talent.

10 typical situations for cheking

Most of them know that the boss can not, can not, accept this objection. No, keep calm and lead skilfully. 10 typical situations and how they react best to them.

  1. The boss stresst: The boss wants you to do something for him urgently? Ask: “Which of the old tasks are less important than the new one?”
  2. The boss wants too much: You should do that, that and that too? Ask: “Which tasks can I put on hold for now!”
  3. Always agree first: If the boss wants something: always agree, acknowledge, call. For example: “This is an ambitious project. That will certainly bring us far ahead! ”
  4. To honor the wish of the boss: The boss wants you to do something senseless? Appreciate the request and then offer another solution: “It would be great if the IT system worked that way. But a small update may be more suitable for your task. ”
  5. To understand criticism of the boss as a suggestion: The boss gruffly criticizes you? Stay friendly, understand his criticism as a suggestion: “An interesting idea. I don't have a solution for that now, but I'll sit down with my colleagues and see if we can do it. ”
  6. Just do not complain! Avoid going too far with your arguments. So not: "How am I supposed to do it now?"
  7. Negotiate correctly: This also applies to negotiations with the boss, eg about the salary: Only do not hastily make counter-proposals. Better find out what the boss wants.
  8. Only no self-sabotage: A frequent rhetorical self-sabotage, to which every boss reacts negatively, is irritating remarks such as: “It can't be done!”, “It's too expensive!”, “Can't you offer me better conditions?”
  9. Just do not talk dead: Do not try to convince the boss with better arguments. Pressure generates counterpressure!
  10. Finding similarities: Search specifically for similarities. What is your boss's interest, what does he really want? Come meet him accordingly.
