As someone who has worked continuously since I was legally able, I’ve had my fair share of terrible bosses—and I’m sure that you have, too. I struggled with the worst one long before I had ever heard of the concept of a hostile work environment or the damaging effects of bad company culture.
My solution was to tough it out for a year when the organization went out of business. For employees, waiting it out is a poor solution. For employers, identifying and dealing with toxic bosses are critical to the success of their organizations.
