Once the type of boss is determined, the danger can be avoided. It's easy to identify the great abuser that climbed to the top employing elbowing. Also that one which has "crowned" himself as the eternal boss. His/her slogan is: idiots like to surround themselves by those who are even more idiot.

These types trigger just one salvation: dismissal. They "finish" either the employees or the company. But the manuals also point that managers could be educated by employees up to a certain point. How? They bear fear: fear of losing their job, of committing errors, that their prestige could fall suddenly, losing their authority, ... In an office, there are many types of endangered species. The "capo di tutti capi" exists just in the mafia. Let's see some species:

TALIBAN: He/she is paranoid, narcissist, and vengeful. Just a good word towards one of his/her enemies will put you on his/her black list. You have to stay away from him/her. If not, you are prone to depression, back pains...

Everyone likes to feel like an expert and give back. Your boss is no different. Maybe you need to reel yourr boss closer, rather than pushing him or her away. Ask what traits or skills you need to develop to reach the next level. Ask for specifics; look at establishing benchmarks to measure your growth. What's more, become a true partner with your boss. You know your boss's flaws: Train yourself to ask the right questions, clarify, and work through the details. This is perfect training for what's really important in business: anticipation, flexibility, relationship-building, collaboration, and execution
