The numbers are in and, well, when it comes to loving work, things aren’t looking so hot.
More than half of us aren’t happy with our jobs says a Conference Board report.
To add insult to injury, 79% of people who quit their jobs do so because they don’t feel appreciated.
According to a Harvard Business Review survey, 58% of us more comfortable trusting strangers than our own boss.
It’s not shocking most workers hate their jobs.
But what do you do if you’re the boss?
Who do you turn to and how do you fix things?
It can feel like you’ve backed yourself into a corner.
Plus, it’s incredibly discouraging to feel like you’re doing everything you possibly can to make your team happy only to read stats like these.
Who’s taking care of you?
What Happens If Your Boss is Miserable, and You’re the Boss?
It seems like everything we read about entrepreneurship tells us we should be happy.
We’ve achieved one of our dreams so why on earth would we not? How could we not be passionate about our career?
But this isn’t true.
There are times when we need to put ourselves first in order to make sure the rest of our team gets what they need too.
In this episode of the Spin Sucks podcast, we talk about what to do if you don’t like your boss, but the boss is you.
