I recently got a comment from a reader I’ll call Lila who basically said “my boss doesn’t respect me.” She had already tried some of the things I suggested in that post, including working on improving her skills and shifting positions. And yet her boss (now ex-boss technically) still wasn’t letting her be part of interesting projects.
She didn’t know what else she could do at that point. Even though she moved to a new position, he still had the power. And he was doing things to keep her down. No respect and a lot of questionable vindictiveness. Not an acceptable way to treat an employee!
