I was wondering what a worst ‘misfortune’ could be. To have an insecured boss, who obviously has limited capabilities. S/he does not harness the expertise, rather hijacks it. At the end of a successful execution, its a selfish person who blows a loud trumpet, without an iota of contribution that could have lifted team mates to grow to the next level.
How to handle such rascals? Getting oneself extricated from such a team is the easiest way out. But such a person exists in every other team. I was wondering for quite some time.
Don’t let the bar lower- at any point of time, no matter what. Outperforming oneself is the key. To do something one chooses to do, and bringing in a dimension which a mean person can not do, simply because s/he won’t have the time to do because of over-indulgence in jealousy.
