Roughest toughest most intimidating bosses

Get with someone who will tell you how great you are. But in my experience, if you are feeling the chill from an intimidating boss, then others up and down the organization are, too. If you feel stupid, usually it shows up first in your tone of voice – and then translates to the rest of your body. It can also be something that you refer others to when they are questioning your abilities.6. Okay, here’s a crazy idea: ask your boss what you can do to improve your performance.

When those negative voices start taking over, give them the boot with positive affirmations. Find one or two things that you can have a legitimate opinion on, and speak up about it.5. Focus on just one task or accomplishment that you can successfully complete in a competent manner.

Remind yourself of all the great things you have accomplished. Believe it or not, your confidence level emanates from your voice, and people around will respond to it. This will give you something to point to that will allow you to mentally tell yourself that you really are not stupid, that you are learning and growing.

Or, you could always prove your boss completely wrong. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can get the Kindle app installed for free on your i-pad, i-phone, or home computer, and read it from there.
