I work in a place where a boss can be appointed by some sort of electoral system, which allows manipulations with the people (boards) who elect. Our present boss used that possibility to a maximum and during her, let´s call it, pre-election campaign she went to unbelieavable depths with her promises and real nonsense and the majority of people really believed that under her "rule" there will be heaven in our workplace.
Some of us saw that she is an extremely volatile personality and that she is moved by some strange motives to become a boss, primarily to revenge to the previous boss, who did not approve of some of her ideas.
I don´t state this as a sign of superiority of this small group of people I am in, I just state the fact. I learned a lot, that´s the problem of workplace mobbing: people rather comply than see the things as they really are. And so, now that she is the boss, we simply work and live, our group of people who saw through her, have no particular problems, because we experience what we expected from her. And it is not difficult at all. We just listen, obey and when the orders clearly lead to a disaster, we do the best for the job, not for her. She is a living proof that a job can be done without a boss. Of course, if we had a creative and stable boss, our job would prosper, the way things go, it just flows through a routine.
Guess what, she actually does not work at all, she just runs around and talks- she masterffully delegated all her tasks to her direct subordinates.
Since it is human to err , we very often come to temptation to rub the salt into the wound of the people who voted for her. Why? Not just because we
want to revenge, but because they clearly show their disappointment with her, but by doing so, they behave as if they had nothing to do with her being elected. Is there anything wrong with the wish for "I told you so, but you didn´t want to listen?"
OK, we are doing this, rubbing the salt already, but I´ m interested how many of you would do the same?
