Toxic bosses?

I have blogged about toxic people before but what about toxic bosses?

I must qualify that I am not referring to my current boss now but I've had my fair share of toxic bosses before. You can't avoid them and you can't run away from them, unless of course you quit the job and so what do you do?

There are many tips out there on how to manage toxic bosses but I found these interesting quotes about being a boss and having a boss:

The single greatest determinant of happiness at work, is the quality of your relationship with your boss.
~ Katherine Crowley and Kathi Elster

Don't blame the boss. He has enough problems.
~ Donald Rumsfeld

A lot of times, there are issues going on with the boss that employees don’t see — they think it’s about them — the employee — and they take it personally. Then, they don’t communicate with their boss and wind up acting inappropriately.
~ Lynn Taylor

A good boss make his men realize that they have more ability than they think they have so that they consistently do better work than they thought they could.
~ Charles Erwin Wilson

The speed of the boss is the speed of the team.
~ Lee Iacocca

Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties.
~ Doug Larson

The person who knows how will always have a job. The person who knows why will always be his boss.
~ Alanis Morissette
