Are there only bad managers or employees are sensitive? This top is an authority figure who holds the reins in the office, and although one of its functions is very direct, there are some who hinder the work of subordinates, warn experts.
However, the fault is not always the boss, because the perception and attitude of some employees may limit the development of the company.
“The important thing is always to act in a measured way and have an emotional intelligence to avoid unnecessary conflicts (…), you are the boss or an employee must maintain a balance between the stomach and reason,” says regional manager for Manpower, Adriana Cabrera.
There are untreatable upper, famous for his bad temper, others that are impossible to be taken seriously by their inability to give orders. In any case the emotional intelligence of both parties is essential to make the company work.
Another essential factor is assertive communication, in addition to a healthy coexistence encourages the development and achievement of higher goals and his team, says the expert from the School of Economics and Business from Universidad Panamericana (UP), Mary Carmen Pereda.
Here are some types of leaders that exist and how you deal with them to avoid unnecessary conflicts:
The autocratic: this is what gives an order and you follow through, regardless of the means (or people), and he expects things done how and when he demands it, because at all times should follow the process and methods. This type of head seeks only meet results, so he does not believe that people are valuable. The experts recommended in this case do your part to keep the target of his criticism is you. And that always finds fault, the ideal is that staff do not take negative comments, provided that you complete your work, the important thing is to avoid fighting at all costs because it is so tight that can even lead to physical confrontation.
Paternalistic: This type of boss is like a father, who berates and calls do their bidding, but unlike the autocratic has a more understanding attitude. If you can not give you a goal ‘ear tug’ and that’s it. This does not mean you should abuse, as angry as any dad will not hesitate to give you a good example and take action if your behavior warrants it.
ENTER: This top takes into account the employees, ask them how they feel at work and I loose the reins a bit to take the initiative, but is afraid of not meeting targets for participation requests that although major decisions are taken alone. In this case it is best to be proactive and provide solutions. The experts recommend developing partnerships to achieve higher levels in the company.
Democratic: it is a chief leader, making it the ideal of every employee. It is characterized by his staff works to achieve maturity. In addition to requesting the opinion, the initiative of employees is important. This superior brand performance and expects its employees to find ways to achieve the goals, so working on the maturity of your team.

The “delegate” this top is to distribute responsibilities to not take any. It has a hierarchically superior, but far from being a real leader, and who keeps evading the decision-making: if a problem is always who will blame, if something went well will be the first beneficiary because he likes to take achievements that actually belong to employees. If you have this kind of superior, it’s best to confront him in a calm and show that the company could do better with mutual cooperation.
