What do you do when your boss tells you to quit?

This is a great question that is haunting large numbers of people in all organizations today. To tackle this challenge, first define who is a boss.

A boss is an "individual" who is also human and who also lives through many personal challenges in his life. If you are not the owner of the business, you also inform people who demand more of you than you do.

In a work environment, the second problem we usually encounter is jealousy and useless gossip. Around 93% of all gossip is lies and ends up ruining our days and reducing productivity by up to 75%; is

This is a great question that is haunting large numbers of people in all organizations today. To tackle this challenge, first define who is a boss.

A boss is an "individual" who is also human and who also lives through many personal challenges in his life. If you are not the owner of the business, you also inform people who demand more of you than you do.

In a work environment, the second problem we usually encounter is jealousy and useless gossip. Around 93% of all gossip is lies and ends up ruining our days and reducing productivity by up to 75%; this in case we're the subject of backdoor discussions. Many times nothing we hear is true and "assumptions" are the culprits that lead us down the path of misery.

Adding the two together, a boss might have his own set of challenges and we might assume it's us he's upset about. You may be going through a divorce or illness in your family, but either our imaginations are leading us to conclusions or a jealous colleague is stoking the fire.

The best thing to do is go ask for a personal meeting with your manager and ask him frankly if he has a problem with you or your performance. You would be surprised to know that the story would be totally the opposite.

Now if you are sure you are trying to get him to quit, then have a candid conversation with him again and ask him how much time he has. You don't want to spoil your reputation, so it's best if you end this amicably.

Modern times have turned us all into cowards, we are afraid to face our torturers in professional and personal life. And in the end, a known demon is better than an unknown angel; you don't know how the next boss will turn out once you quit.

So be patient and be bold!

Good luck

Sometimes it is not your imagination. However, if you are smart, you must downplay this understanding and challenge it at all costs. Most bosses want you to quit because they don't have the power to fire you. If you are not doing anything wrong, they have nothing against you. Maybe you have influence or maybe you are popular (a nice guy). In any case, the boss is upset with you. Just ignore it the best you can.

In the meantime, make a resume and update everything on it. Keep working as usual. If you can move up the company beyond him, bide your time. If you are in a very small firm

In the meantime, make a resume and update everything on it. Keep working as usual. If you can move up the company beyond him, bide your time. If you are in a very small company, you should start looking for a new job. It depends on who has the authority to fire you. If it's not this boss, don't worry. I usually work in jobs that have strong unions for this reason. I don't take risks working for small businesses without human resources. If I left every time some boss wanted me to leave ... I would never have a career!
