Boss Type: The Non-Communicator
Some bosses are just terrible at speaking with their staff. Even though you might talk with your boss on a daily basis, they still don’t really tell you what is going on. It is almost as if a rip in the space-time continuum causes a memory lapse in hundreds of bosses around the world, resulting in them forgetting that THEY HAVE STAFF!
If you have a non-communicator boss, chances are that your boss can’t be worse than this one. Poor Harry shares with us a boss that really didn’t share the vital info. Check it out:
One time, I was having an issue at work, so I went into my boss’ office to ask for assistance. While I explained my problem to him, he just sat there with this blank look upon his face. After I rambled on for a few minutes, he finally asked, “Why are you telling me?”
“Because you are my supervisor,” I replied.
“No, I’m not,” he said.
“Uh… yes you are. You hired me, and I’ve been reporting to you for over six months.”
“But, I changed the org chart weeks ago. You are now reporting to Mary.”
Yup, my boss decided to change the org chart, and never bothered to tell me that I was now reporting to a different supervisor. You would think that he might want to tell me that little fact. Especially since this boss was just two cubicles over and my new supervisor would be in a different city.
