You may have an interesting job, in a prestigious organization, surrounded by pleasant colleagues, but your professional life can be a living hell if you have to deal with an abusive boss.

Is it possible to reverse this intolerable situation without risking putting your job – or even your career – in jeopardy? Totally, according to a recent study by the Academy of Management Journal.

An innovative approach

The American Genius presents the highlights of this study, which offers a novel approach. It recommends, of course, to not avoid the supervisor, nor to confront him or her. Instead, employees should try to shift the balance of power by:

  • making their boss more dependent on them;
  • forming a coalition with other abused workers or with colleagues who have better relationships with the boss.
