Micromanager Boss Type

Picture this: Your boss wants to know every tiny detail, like they’re checking your Insta feed. Micromanagers love control, but they’re not always clued in on trust. They hover because they’re worried or just need loads of info to hit their own goals.

Play Open Book: Give ’em what they need – updates, deets, all that jazz. Ask how they prefer info served, like choosing filters for your pics!

Avoid the Ghosting: Don’t leave ’em hanging! Keep ’em in the loop without feeling like you’re stuck on repeat.

2. The ‘Buddy-Bosses’: More Friends than Bosses

Imagine your boss is trying to slide into your friend circle more than into work. These “friend managers” care a tad too much about being liked. Tough calls? Nah, they’d rather chill with the squad.

Seek Allies Elsewhere: If mentorship’s your jam, hunt for it outside the pack. Find mentors or courses to level up.

Own Your Hustle: Enjoy the freedom! These bosses give space, so seize the chance to spread your wings.

No one wants to work for the office grump. They’re often short-fused and lack people skills. So not cool.
