Ep 82. When Your Boss is the Problem: How to Maintain Your Sanity and Professionalism


Do you have a difficult boss? Or have you had one before? 

A challenging relationship with your boss can lead to you questioning your career decisions or looking for a way out when you actually love your job and are really good at it.

It’s also one of the biggest challenges in the workplace that leads to burnout.

It’s not easy to be in the position of having a difficult boss whether it’s because they’re micromanaging, communicating poorly or highly critical and whilst you can’t control them or their behaviour there are things within your control that can make all the difference.

In this episode of The Aligned Achiever podcast we explore questions to ask yourself and actionable that my clients implement to navigate the complexities of working with a difficult boss whilst preserving your well-being and career trajectory.





In this Episode We Explore:

  • The three elements at play in navigating having a difficult boss
  • What is within your control and how you can leverage this to manage the situation
  • The mindset and perspective shifts that I work with my clients on
  • Employing effective communication skills to engage and rectify the situation

Untamed CEO Mindset Intensives


If you want to create meaningful change in your life and career, it starts with your mindset.


In this session we will address the operating system that your subconscious is running on and upgrade it to one which is supportive of where you are right now (rather than the one that you needed 15 years ago).


It’s time to become the Untamed CEO so that you can stop relentless striving and start living and leading as the real you in your life and career.


In this experience I bring together my training in Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT), feminine embodiment coaching, energetics and neuroscience. 


In a nutshell: you are upgraded holistically. 


By the end of our time together, you will find freedom and peace in your life and career and start trusting yourself, your path and your purpose.
