How to Stop a Bully Boss

Executive coach and author Peggy Klaus lists 8 helpful tips for stopping a bully boss:

1. Identify the workplace jerk.  Not all demanding managers behave like bullies.
2. Don’t report a bully boss to their supervisor.  Most managers are aware of the abusive behavior of their subordinates, and Klas explains that this is usually the quickest way to get yourself fired.
3. Confront your bully boss, in a calm and professional manner, as soon as you recognize a pattern of hostility.  Explain that you will not tolerate abusive behavior.
